Review: A professionally designed and maintained system of trails. Once in the woods the trails are marked extremely well so you always know where you are located and can easily use map to get to the trails you want to hit.

Review: Very enjoyable semi technical xc trail. Rooty sections, lots of hairpins, some challenging climbs.

Review: The trail is technical with lots of roots and rocks. Some big climbs. They've added ladder bridges on the trail, and that has made it so much better. Overall it's a great trail and can't wait for the new trails that are going to be built next year.

Review: A dedicated group of individuals has logged some time on the trail this spring, adding some really cool features to enhance the experience. More work is planned and I cannot wait to see how this trail will link to the new trail system at Detroit Mountain. If you are in lakes country, you MUST give this trail a run.

Review: I rode this today with my son. I am admittedly a novice, and this was my son's first time out, but we had a great ride. We did get lost once, but found the trail again further along - they could use some more signage, but overall it was pretty good. The leaves were also covering the trail, which made it difficult to see at times.

Overall, it's a great trail. There are some nice wider open parts (not ski trails) that flow fairly well, and some tighter technical parts. It was greasy when I was out there, so I look forward to trying it again next summer when it's a little dryer.

I would recommend this for a quick ride or maybe twice around for a fun couple hours of riding. I also look forward to the coming improvements!

Review: I just did this trail today with my son. I am admittedly a novice on mountain bikes, and it was my son's first time. Most of the trail was very nice, not too difficult, however we did find ourselves on the "Most Difficult" section, and it proved to be a big challenge.

Overall, this trails is a fun short ride, or if you want, go around it twice. Sections of it are more on the technical end, but there are sections that flow pretty well, too.

I look forward to riding it more.

Review: Great new section has opened! I have been able to link together a loop of about 3.8 miles. Two loops makes for a great day. I like to go once in each direction for variety. Very thankful for such a great trail 5 minutes from my door!

Review: Nice trail close to home! Classic singletrack but, not overly technical. It does have some roots, rocks and a couple tight sections that keep you focused, and there are a couple short but steep climbs that are enough to test your cardio. It is a new trail that has been built VERY well, and looks like new sections are under construction. TONS of potential here. Throw in some longer climbs and this will be a SWEET trail! Whoever is building it can email me and I will happily chip in some labor to build it!
