Trail Description
About this trail
Two primary directional loops: Yellow - 7 Miles - Easy multi-use trail that is mostly level. Blue - 12 Miles - Moderate mostly singletrack trail with some bypass-able technical features. Dont expect any fast downhills or extremely steep uphills. Limited singletrack, some double, some powerlines. Nice lake to take a dip in. Excellent camping accommodations.

Night riding is allowed, but the park closes at 9:45pm.

Review: I had not been to this trail system for several years. Wow, they have done a fantastic job with it. The trails are now clearly marked, and very well maintained. I even rolled up on a guy blowing the monster mile with a back pack blower...,poor guy I know I scared the stuffing out of him when I passed, he couldn't hear me! Definitely worth the time to drive here!

Review: Single 70% & Double track 30%. Closer to 11 miles total. Might be another few miles if you add in paved trails. Not very technical; even advanced section not hard. More like a beginner to intermediate trail loop, but fun & worth doing. Night riding here would be good. Safe parking but has a state parking fee of $5. Often closed after rains so call to be sure.

Review: Sweet trail system. Nothing too technical. Not too much climbing. The "Monster Mile" is a technical climb that will make you work. The flow is fantastic here. The trail is on a beautiful piece of property. The trails are very well maintained. They have done an excellent job with the signs. The trails are a model for how to build without erosion. This place is a blast.

Review: A most challenging trail to ride. You better eat your wheaties before you show up to ride. Never seen more inclines than I have on the Blue trail. Some parts were quite confusing as they were not marked very well.

Review: Rode the yellow trail I must say it was a bit confusing. The marks were not clear at certain points so we ended up backtracking a lot. It took us about 2:34 to finish ????????. Besides that is a fun trail and beautiful sceneries.

Review: Rode the 12 mile blue loop. Fun trail with various scenic lake views along the way. Nice trail markers at each major intersection. Trail was nice but nothing special in terms of features or difficulty, a few moderate climbs and some flowly downhill sections. Worth a visit if you're way out yonder

Review: Would be much higher if not for the overgrown poison ivy along much of the bike trail between the dam and the entrance. We had three young kids riding with us and that made for a lot of concern about one falling into it or even riding through it. When you consider that you have to pay a hefty bike fee for each rider the least that could be done is to ortho back the yard on either side of the trail in the summer.

Similar Trail: Haw creek but twice as long and a bit more difficult
