    I'm from TN so I'm a bit spoiled with my home trails but I was in this area for work so I checked them out...waste of time. Not marked well at all and no flow to anything. These trails need some serious TLC.

    It's a nice little track. Nothing radical. No big obstacles, just tight, twisty single track. Good place for beginners and for more skilled folks to get their lungs trained.

    Got about 6 miles total.For the most part fairly well built.Need more signs so you pick a direction to ride all the trails the first time.need more dips and humps and nicks to deflect the water.

    The trails look like they could use a little love but most of them were well marked and color coordinated with the map. I spent a little while exploring the place but once you get your bearings it isn't too difficult to navigate. All and all nothing too extravagant but definitely worth checking out if you're nearby.

    Road the trail again today. Still the trails are not clearly marked and there does not look as if there has been any improvement on the trails since I road them a couple of months ago. But that being said, I enjoyed my ride which was mostly under a thick canopy which keeps the heat down. It is single track with some minor obstacles to make it fun. I will continue to ride these trails of and on because they are fun.

    4/17/16, I think I road the outer loop it is difficult to determine as the trails are not marked. There was some debris on the trails but hey, it was a beautiful day and I was riding in the woods. What could be better.

    My first Real MTB tracks. Been there twice and am getting used to it. Perimeter trail (red) is good for newbies (like me); climbs and some twisty singletrack. Yellow & blue have more variety and have their moments. Will return for skills work.

    Guys, If you give this 5 mile trail system 5 stars, then what do you give the world class trail systems out west? Or even some of the really good trails in the area like Fountainhead or the Watershed with countless miles of trail? Keep the ratings honest, this place is average at best. Every trail system can't be 5 stars

    Rode this trail for the first time today. It has potential, but trail map could be better as well as trails being better marked. I am interested in seeing how this trail improves.

    I rode the trails here for the 2nd time yesterday. The first time was at Snotcycle this past year. There was snow on the ground then so I didn't get the full experience. That being said I have been itching to get back but couldn't make it work out. I was also curious about riding there at random times but as long as trail isn't wet its open. Nice flowing trails, a decent break from the climbing I usually do in WV...Fun place for a group ride and good place for a beginner. I will be returning soon! If anyone from the group that built these trails read this, please PM me on Singletracks!

    Further to my last post I can tell a lot of elbow grease went into this place and want to thank all who built it. PM me if I can help maintain as I live relatively close and would love to contribute.

    Great set of trails, generally well marked. Perimeter trail is beginner, while several internal trails are solid intermediates. "FSM" is surprisingly long. All are well maintained. You'll find ups/downs, streams, bridges, roots, log jumps, etc. Go to MTB LoCo to print trail map in advance. Fun ride!

    Really enjoyed checking out this trail w my sons Quinn and Charlie. A little overgrown in places, but as a newcomer, I think it's an excellent place to learn and practice your skills w a variety of terrain and obstacles. Looking forward to getting back

    Bit of everything on this trail. Best one I found in this area. Well maintained, clean, well marked.

    This track is very tight, it almost feels like it's on 1 square mile of land, I know it's obviously more than that, but it feels like you are just zig zagging back and forth over the same area. I was honestly shocked that I wasn't constantly crossing trails I had already gone over. I went here the day after it had rained, so the trails were still really muddy so my rear tire was sliding out on me all day and had a hard time picking up rolling momentum. I think if the conditions were drier, I would have liked this place more. If I could only give one gripe about this place is that it feels really really small, even for the 5 miles of track. If you need to scratch an itch, this place would do the job, but in all, it wasn't worth the 35 minute drive for me with other places like Seneca Ridge, Schaeffer Farm, and the Watershed all the same distance.

    I appreciate places like this. If I lived near by, I'd ride this a few times a week but in the order of the world, this place falls short of some of the other trails in the area.

    If you're in the area make sure to stop here. Trail head has a good map, but I had to stop and figure out what trail I was on a few times. Good flow to it and seems to be getting better.

    I have only ridden this trail one time. I am itching to get back there asap! I did a winter race there called Snotcycle. It was nasty outside when the race was run. It had mixed sleet and snow all night and with hundreds of tires rolling through it turned into a mud pit. There has been a lot of hard work put into these trails and I hope they are not too messed up. There is about a 5 mile loop in there with maybe a little more but the race did 5 miles. In dry conditions this trail would be awesome, good mix of up and down for the area. so glad I learned of this trail. Pretty close to me and had never known about it. I will be returning when things dry out!

    Great little Singletrack just outside of Leesburg. Not as challenging as Lake Fairfax or Fountainhead, but great for a good Singletrack Fix.
