I can't believe I waited this long to check out Horizons. Past reviews mentioned fallen trees and blocked routes, but there was only 1 minor block caused by a recently fallen tree when I went. The trail system contains 2 loops, an outer perimeter loop (P) and technical offshoots from it (T). If you take a right toward P at the fork at the end of the gravel entrance, you'll do a quick climb with T options throughout the rest of the way. In total, this makes for a ride of about 3.5 miles, including the gravel climb back to the parking lot. Get the map from the park's website for a more detailed map, but really, it's such a small area that sooner or later you'll figure it out. Signage is ok, but some forks are unmarked. The trails are soft, natural, and not at all packed down from riders. The trails get minimal use from bikes, though a few old built wooden parts remain. Definitely a woodsy vibe here with many spiders and webs across the path. Few climbs and descents, good flow, good gulleys. A weathered paper sign near the entrance says Ken's Bike Shop maintains the trails. If so, thanks, and I hope to see the trails stay clear!
