    Had a great day there. Their map could certainly use improvement, but I found a few staff there who were knowledgeable and friendly.

    I wouldn't recommend this trail for beginners,novices. make sure you have spare tube and downhill gear wouldn't be a bad idea.If you are looking for more of a cross country trail ride this aint it.The cc trails have old race tape and are not easy to follow.

    The trails are very, very poorly marked. Yes there is a map, but it does not help much when up on the mountain. The staff was not friendly or accommodating.

    Amazing !!!! Rent a bike it will be less expensive than what you'll end up doing to your bike. Be sure you have body gear. Not for beginners. A must ride !!!
