Review: Near town, easy after work ride. Often crowded with hikers. Much less crowded if you head over the ridge on foothills trail.

Review: A fun trail, especially coming down. Unless you're great at trials you'll have to hike your bike through one or two spots, but nothing major. Coming down is a blast with tons of flow potential.

Review: A fun little trail for before or after work. The rock garden at the switchback is a good test of your balance and power.

Review: Just finished Maxwells. Awesome trail, a bit chunky in spots. More so then I'd like (I'm learning it's the norm for the area). I would give it 5 stars straight away if it wasn't for the chunk factor. In the trails defense I am not riding a dual suspension bike which would obviously make a huge difference. As always, make sure you, your gear, and your bike are tip top. All in all an awesome fun trail to ride (sans hikers). Can't wait to conquer it once I upgrade my bike!!!

Review: Nice stretch of trail if you're looking to get a quick ride in. You'll climb through a technical stretch of trail (not overly, but enough to keep you on your toes) up to a road. I crossed the road and rode down some trails that hug the reservoir (non-technical singletrack, fun), then at the swimming parking lot, turned around and rode up a trail that hugged the road, then rode back down Maxwell, which is where you get to ride that fun technical stuff down.

Review: Short but fun. You can carry some speed coming down if it is not too busy with hikers

Review: This climb is short, ~400ft, but intense. There are numerous steep/technical sections (rockgardens with steps, and some very narrow slots between the rocks). Every section is rideable on the way up, but very few people can link it all together for for a clean climb. It's lot of fun on the way down. Mistakes tend to lead to endos. Earlier this year, trail maintenance removed the single toughest obstacle, a very narrow crack between rocks that took some careful timing to keep from hanging a pedal. The trail can get crowded, avoid peak hours or get over it. You can link onto a nice trial network at the top of the climb.
