Mountain Biking Grape Creek

This singletrack is far too wide and not very interesting. After a mile, you come to a rather treacherous creek crossing, especially in the spring when the runoff is high. What's on the other side isn't really worth the risk, and then you have to get back. I gave it the two stars just because the scenery is impressive.

    Don't worry about it being closed. You're not missing out on anything as a biker. Good scenery which you may just as well see on foot or horseback as the "singletrack" was nothing special.

    About a mile into the trail it enters a Wildlife area. Foot and horse traffic only now. Too bad, still a beautiful area to hike.

    I'm not sure what is going on with this trail but there is a gate with a chain and lock on it before you get down to the creek. There is a sign that says it's private property now.
