This trail has great potential if only it had some serious trail work done on it. There isn't much in the way of climbs or descents at all, but it has a lot of fun twists and turns, some moderate short ups and downs, and enough obstacles to keep a good rider interested. Never do you get much cardio or speed due to the very rough trail conditions. Tons of rocks and roots everywhere that only serve to beat you to death over 8 miles of trail. The trees do provide some good cover from the sun that will be great later in the season when it's hot. The signage needs help, and the shortcuts need to be blocked. Too many shortcuts tend to make following the correct path difficult and it also just tracks up the natural scenery unecessarily. Recommend a full suspension bike, but even that will only help the rough ride so much. The campground is still closed, but it's also in desperate need of repair. Looks abandoned back to nature, overgrown, and in disrepair. Too bad because this would be a great place to camp and ride if the whole park were well maintained.
