Trail Description
About this trail
Starts on right hand side and is all pure sweet single track. It is technical and has many manmade stunts(rockgardens, log jumps) with bypass at each. The main feature is "THE CRATER". Which is a popular spot to stop and do some jumping and hucking. Opportunity to get sweet air.

Q: Is this a decent trail for a beginner? I've never ridden a singletrack before. Thanks! -drewman87

A: I don't know how old this question is, but from what I've riden of it (had to bail last year when I was there due to rain) it is very beginner friendly. If you run into anything that worries you, you can either ride around it, or walk around it. No shame in that for a new rider, enjoy!

Review: Trail is really well maintained and marked. Fun for all levels of riders. There is multiple technical obstacles throughout the trail. Almost all of them have ride around's if you don't want to go over them. No extremely difficult climbs. Also there is a multi-use trail that can be used to cut out early if needed. You can access it from almost anywhere except the far southwest part of the trail.

Review: Very nice, fun, well mantained, beautiful, and easy to follow track. I enjoyed a lot the "most difficult" sections along the 10 miles. Can't wait to come back. No regrets even after 50min drive from Windsor, Canada.

Review: One of the more fun sub-technical trails out there. I reccomend the "expert parts" of the trail that split from the main path. Overall a beautiful trail.

Review: The trail itself is very well maintained and a lot of fun to ride. Some of the things that I really like about it has to be the optional advanced features such as rock gardens, log piles, and several skinnies that really test your abilities. My friend and I had high hopes for the "Crater" but unfortunately it wasn't nearly as big as we thought it would be, even though the two jumps seem to be in decent condition the ride in is full of rocks making it very difficult to get a clean ride in and big air. The pump track on the other hand was a lot bigger than I had expected, and looks and rides great. Overall a nice trail and will plan on coming back in the near future.

Review: First time riding in over 15 years and first time on a MTB. Trails were easy to follow and quite a few challenges on the easy paths to help build skill. Will ride here often.

Review: We rode this trail 2 weeks in a row and have had a blast! We are far from pro but we know how to have fun :) I like that there are options to some of the harder obstacles - not quite ready for those yet. This will be our go-to trail to build confidence and endurance.

Review: Well marked, not physically taxing, but a lot of mental work, tons of twists and turns? And very scenic

Review: A fun, flowy trail system with plenty of fun technical features. It is not nearly as sandy as many other trails in the area.

Review: Good trail with some technical stuff to play on. Flow is not the best but very well signed.
