With like 18 miles of total trails and a big loop of 14 listed on Singletracks, I figured I could do a couple loops, with some exploring on the first one and get 30 plus. Well I managed 35 miles, but the loop was kind of impeded by a big boggy area. So went to that point in both directions, plus some exploring. The Ameritrail, was pretty fun, I liked it best on the way back. The rest was either dual track, with sporadic mud holes or Forest Service roads. Some of the Dual track was almost like single track, kinda. Numerous places had a slightly greasy layer, that put me down once and made for lot's of two wheel drifting around corners, which made up a little for the lack of tech and twists. Got some practice with the Knard in the mud. The 34/15 was a decent gear, except in the mud bog.
There is a lot of potential here. But some serious work would need to be done.
