    Definitely better than typical trails in this area. Good use of terrain and overall a very enjoyable experience. A few downed limbs and trees on the trails. I moved the limbs, but there were two trees too large to clear by hand. Also, there was a very small section that was flooded, but not entirely impassable. Even with the few aforementioned issues, this is now my new favorite local spot and I will return. Be sure to bring bug spray.

    Trails were a little slick today no doubt from recent rain. Markings were pretty easy to read and trails flowed pretty simple from one to another. Not much in the way of big elevation changes but some fun small features. Few trails need a bit of maintenance but over a good ride if you're local.

    8.5 miles of extremely well maintained single track. Fast flowing sections to slower more technical sections. There are different types of sections for every level of rider. The parking area is a very nice gravel area with a bike stand, tools, and a air pump. There is also a large gravel walking track. The trails are marked and also have bailout spots if you want to head back to the parking area.

    8.6 miles of awesome single track. Variety of fast sections with well planned technical areas. It's really a fun trail and worth the time to check it out. Also well marked.

    Trail carved in river flats ... No elevation change, tight switchbacks. Did not care for this trail.

    It's a great trail, it has a lot of short extremely steep hills. Just don't ride it when is wet. Trust me.

    Love that trail. Not too hard but not crazy hard. Great for young and old ages

    A slow, winding, & heavily shaded (by dense vegetation) short singletrack trail. Sunglasses not needed although eye protection is recommended. The straight aways are not long enough to gather much speed on this trail. There is one or more unavoidable bridges that are 2-3 feet high on this trail. The bridges are newish and are in very good condition . With repetition the trail could be ridden faster, but I just don't hold out much hope that it could really be that exciting due to the lack of attainable speed.

    Wet today due to recent rains. Short and sweet. Lots of good rollers, twists and turns. Great fun.

    Love the trail. Tight turns, flowing in sports, good work out. Can't wait for what's next. Grate job to all who has been working on these trails.
