Network of trails. I ride a 7 mile loop. Great training ride. Windy, twisty, a lot of turns. Not too tech. Big chain ring or fixed gear compatable. Love to show you my loop. E-mail me and I really will!

Rider questions

Q: Are there any maps?
A: There's a few map kiosks in the forest by some intersections

Q: I went there and they had trees across the trail every 100 ft. or so on the hiking trail. Went to the other entrance and it was a straight rail bed that Dirt Bikes had tore it up. I must have missed the single track that has been mentioned.
