Review: Rode for the 1st time. As a flatlander (Austin TX), the climbs were challenging, but descents were fun. There is some serious rutting going on which makes it a bit slower on the descents. I suspect the motocross guys have ripped up some of the terrain. I rode about 8 miles of the trails. School house rock is great, and fun on the return. You'll need to be prepared to climb if you're going to do this trail.

Review: Huge fan of these trails. Rode up 3rd Gulch to Pipeline to Firebox to Dead Cow to Scratch to World's Greatest to Hockett Gulch (?) to School House Rock. Ass-kicker of a ride, but awesome. World's Greatest is one of the more fun downhills I've ridden in a while, got some of everything - very fast smooth singletrack into baby-head fields, steeps, etc. Awesome. Scratch is a blast, more buff desert singletrack. Hockett is similar, but more moto-style with some fun whoop-di-dos. You've gotta climb out of School House, so keep some legs for that, tough after that ride, but it ends on very fun, flowy, bermed up trail. All in all a great ride, requires some route-finding and navigation.

Review: Abrams Ridge - Itch - Scratch - world's greatest-Elmer's - schoolhouse rock. I love this combo! Worlds and Elmer's are so fast.

Review: Found this to be a disappointing area. Throttle twister trails masquerading as mtn bike riding. Pass,

Review: This is a great, challenging network of trails on the edge of town. Any route will required a serious climb and a rapid descent, often on loose tread. The climbs through the dry pinion forest are very nice, although some pitches may require pushing. On top, there are broad sagebrush meadows with superb 360 degree views.
