I don't know that it's a destination, but if you're driving by with your bike on your rack and an hour to spare, you should really ride this one.
Yeah, the first mile of trail is fully 10 feet wide, but as you get a bit higher it turns into a real singletrack, and up a bit higher it turns into a bit of a tricky singletrack. The climb/descent ratio was a very good value.
Too bad it's just so short. Nice shade, thick forest, wildlife.
If there was 2 or 3 times as much trail here as there is, it would be a great destination. But for sure keep it in mind as a drive-by quickie.
