    I'll leave this at beginner, because you can easily get miles upon miles down here on smooth gravel--but that's not what we're here for. There's oodles of intermediate trail out here, and I only wish the trail map included the names of the trails, because I ended up doubling back once or twice when all I wanted to do was one solid loop.
    If you find and stick to the blue marked trails, you'll have a blast, they're fast, with some challenging, technical climbs, along with some pretty fast downhills. I went left immediately from the dam itself's parking lot, stayed left, then left again to get to the singletrack. Don't be discouraged--that first section was by far the toughest, so maybe going to the right initially may be the way to go. Either way, I'll definitely be back, and what a great place to introduce new riders to the sport.

    Never knew these trails were right next to my house! Beginner MTB rider, really enjoyed all of this (right up until my pinch-flat). Looking forward to hitting this trail regularly!

    Great trails easy doubletracks with plenty of off shoot singletracks, and some fun obstacles. I always park at Greenbriar and make a loop around the river and ponds. I think a great place to start riding on trails.
