We rode here while on vacation from the midwest and really did not enjoy the trails. These were the only ones of 8 trails we did not like. They are not laid out in a way that makes them easy to navigate, so we were constantly checking trailforks (which can be true of many trails). We quickly came to realize that a green trail meant a double-wide boring ski trail, but that black meant trials riding: go 2 feet, turn your wheel, hop your bike, move 2 feet, etc. As a result, we tried to stick to blues, but even those just lacked enjoyment. We were riding in 2 of the 3 major areas, and did not go to the "downhill" oriented set of trails, so perhaps the great reviews are more focused on those trails and that type of riding? The only trail I liked and made a point to do twice was Rauli's Run. Otherwise, I was disappointed we wasted a day of riding here. I really don't understand all the great reviews on this place, especially given the closeness to stellar trails: Perry Hill & Green Mountain trails.
