Trail Description
About this trail
This is a great trail for intermediate to advanced riders. Scenery is great and your $5 helps keep the place going. Recently found out that you can pay $60 for a year permit or help maintain trails on volunteer day and get free access. Go to MMBA for more info on this great trail.

Review: This is a beautiful trail system set among a network of lakes. The trails can be confusing if you aren't familiar with them and there are only a few markers. There is also a charge which you pay in cash or check at the trail head. Overall a very fun and flowy course. There are some sharp turns, tough climbs and steep downhills ending in sand pits as well as a few bridges that make it a somewhat technical ride and challenging ride. This is definitely one of my favorite places to ride, highly recommended but do check the schedule for seasonal closures.

Review: Rode the black trail. VERY HILLY! It was a sufferfest for us. This is the first time my boys wanted to find a way out of a trail, and I was sucking wind too. All downhills are greeted by a sand pit at the bottom, killing momentum. Might be good for some, but I won't be back.

Review: I decided to come back. Still very expensive for a day ride, but I was in the area. Anyway a really fun trail. Sandy and almost all built to be sustainable. The back of the Expert Loop gets a bit fun and rowdy. Some great downhill sections that are a blast if you can let it rip. A couple surprise fast turns that require sudden braking.

Review: I previously reviewed this trail from a 2008 ride. I just rode these trails this weekend, and found the area completely changed. There is a new trail system to replace the old trails, and I only found a few spots where the old trails were used. There are 4 loops. The two beginner loops are short and intersect each other several times. The older one is part singletrack, but also uses gravel roads. The brand new one is all singletrack. The intermediate loop goes around the lake and has some very nice views. The expert loop is a nice extension on the intermediate loop.
All the the singletrack is narrow, fast, and flowy. There are no real technical features besides a few bridges and some sand that is typical of the area. I was surprised by the lack of roots. The "intermediate" and "expert" designations must come from the elevation change only. There are some challenging hills, but nothing overly difficult. These trails are a blast to ride! I won't wait over 7 years to come back this time!

Review: Great trail system lots of hill climbs. With even better down hill sections. Very scenic but also very confusing trail system very easy to get lost. They are producing more trail right now for a shorter beginner loop and it is very to easy to wind up on those and be on unmarked trails. Great place to go especially if you are in the area.

Review: Trail is closed now. Iti s closed during the Scout Camp season from the 2nd Saturday for June through the 3rd Saturday of August. Then again for the month of November. Really a bummer as those are 3 of the prime riding months of the year. Bummed because I drove here on a great evening for a ride, only to discover this. I ended up driving an hour to Merrell trail for a really nice night ride.
Also the parking fee is now up to $10 for a night, or $60 for the season. Yikes! This is a nice trail, but those prices, along with that much closed time, means rides here will be pretty precious and far between.
