I gave this trail 2 stars hoping that some of the stuff I couldn't hit was more rideable. I rode the majority of trails on the east and south side, but missed some of the west side trails. This trail could use more signage, not so much posts or signs themselves, but a map showing "you are here". They did a good job of signage from a posts perspective, but constantly having to check trailforks or MTBProject to make sure you are going where you had intended can make a ride frustrating. Some of the trails should have been connected so you don't have 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, etc. mile small sections, which add to the confusion stated above.
Mapping aside, the trail was pretty overgrown on every section I rode, and in the 3-4 spots where I found some flow it was seemingly met with sandy washouts at the bottom. This could be more fun on a plus or fat bike, but I was rolling a 29x2.6 up front (Nobby Nic) and 29x2.4 out back (Ardent) so it wasn't a skinny xc tire. This may be better guided and once it's maintained, and perhaps I just picked the segments that were not the best, but I was shocked to find it compared in ratings to anything in CAMBA, Hickory Ridge, or Levis Mounds. I personally didn't find it to be nearly as entertaining.
