Trail Description
About this trail
Trail has three loops (north loop, south loop, gnu loop). All the trails have a combination of hill climbs, short and quick down hills and jumps. trails are packed dirt and loose sand and tons of tree roots to keep you on your toes. All three loops have different challenges like an up and over , log ride, teeder todder, scout bridge and log jumps. All three trails are connected so you can ride them one at a time or all together.

Q: thinking about myself and my 14 year old son riding these trails both beginers, would these trails be ok for us -Guest

A: Short answer yes. I would start at the Gnu loop heading counter-clockwise, which is best accessed from the South parking lot. There is an elevated bridge (~2' above ground) in the first third of the loop, you'll see it in advance if you want to walk over it instead of riding. Lot's of places to bail out and trail is well marked.

Review: Great singletrack with lots of twisty and winding parts. Many man made features like small jumps and pump area. A free roots and spots with sand that make it a bit technical. All round great everyday trail.

Review: Trail is a little confusing in the beginning to find the North Trail. I wanted to connect all the trails together in one giant loop, but found myself constantly stopping to figure out where I was on the map since there is many intersecting trails. Once you are in one of the loops, it is signed very well, but being from out of town and riding the trail blind, it was a bit confusing. Trail is mostly beginner with a few intermediate spots. The sandy spots made it a bit tricky, but overall its a good flow trail where you can really let it out.

Review: An incredibly fun intermediate trail that embraces what it should be. The multiple different miny trails that make it up can be confusing, but are always well worth the trip. While only being 9 miles long it always feels like way more, in a good way

Review: First time here today. Rode the north and gnu loops. It rained yesterday and the trails were a little slippery. Lots of roots, lots of sand, mostly flat but the roots and narrow sections keep it interesting. North loop was ok but you can't really open it up.
Gnu section was more fun for me because of the man made obstacles and overall just seemed to flow better. I plan to come back after everything dries out and give it another go.

Review: Wooden obstacles are slippery when wet. Make sure you control your speed for them, especially on the gnu loop

Review: Overall a really nice trail for beginners and seasoned riders. Each loop offers something different for the riders and the obstacles keep you engaged. Not a lot of long climbs or downhills, so be prepared to pedal and pump your way around the trail

Review: Did the North and South loops after a moderate rain. Don't let it's intermediate ranking fool you, while the difficulty varies throughout the trail, the hard parts are quite challenging, and feature a number of short steep climbs with frequent obstacles, and tight turns. Consistent bailout points are a nice feature, Somewhat confusing markers and trail layout can make routing frustrating at times. Would recommend this trail to a newer biker ready to challenge their technical skills.

Review: Nice flow, lots of roots. Center of forest on all trail can be pretty sloppy when wet. Usually very little traffic. On the whole a good group of trails

Review: The elevation is pretty flat and doesn't vary much other than by the creek/river.
