    Not really mtb trails. Mostly meandering worn down jeep roads and double track that leads into no man's land of woods and scrub. Few signs if any, some unmarked side "trails" go for 50' or so before ending. However, you can ride for several miles here, get a workout in over the hilly terrain, and likely have the place to yourself.

    Easy fire roads and like most RWA properties, empty. Map here: http://scrcog.org/wp-content/uploads/trails/RWA/RecTrails_RWA2_6-2-16.pdf

    Avoid the yellow trail - as of August 2019 completely overgrown, blocked by multiple downed trees.
