this could be a 3 star rating with some trail maintenance but beyond that the trail design leaves much to be desired. I get the feeling that it's not ridden much nor by very many people.
Adequate signage and well marked with maps but badly overgrown. in many places including the trailhead, it was difficult to know where the trail even was. covered with leaves and pine needles in many areas, deadfall, branches, face-slappers aplenty. bridges were all in good shape but the growth was a bit much and the trail lacked "flow" with many corners too tight for modern bars.
if you like the sort of trail where you can't go fast and is super rooty and stupid twisty you'd like this one. I don't. it's the first time I've deliberately cut my ride short (had it been dryer, I probably would've stuck it out). Hit the two- track between posts 7 and 10 which was actually the most enjoyable part of the ride.
The two track was good for riding but the singletrack was meh. only reason I ended up here is because MMCC was hosting a tri race and I'd already driven all the way from Evart/Marion and it was the next closest trail. I would not ride again, especially if MMCC was open.
