This place is a bit of a hidden gem. I rode there for the first time today (not sure why I hadn't found it yet, being only 10 miles from my house). There's a lot of trail packed into a small area. The trails are well laid out, with tight, twisty singletrack that makes great use of such a small space and utilizes the abundance of exposed rock for lots of rollers and technical climbs & descents. The singletrack here is a bit different than what you'd find in Landlocked Forest, Russell Mill, HP, etc. You could easily get lost here, but I built a Strava route to follow and found all the good stuff. I rode 10 miles with just a bit of double-back on doubletrack. I will definitely be back! Unfortunately, I came across one dirt bike and one ATV (on doubletrack). Motorized vehicles are prohibited here. Fortunately, the tight, twisty layout of the singletrack keeps the motos off the good stuff.
The layout/geography at Mill Pond is pretty unique to the area which makes it a nice change of pace.
