    Had the opportunity to ride these trails October 8th and 9th. The main trails are excellent. They are Bear, Grizzly, Gray Ghost Holer, and Fast and Loud. Fast and Loud was my favorite even though I rode it the wrong way for that day. Being an out-of- towner I got turned arounder. Plenty of flow and hills for a good work out. These trails are well maintained. Four trails were marked black diamond but I think they only up rated them because of berms and jumps if you go fast which I didn't so I had no problem.(I consider myself a low intermediate). However.....the side trails that I did: Whitey Tiley, Whitney Woo, Holey Coley and Spine, (missed Rootie Tootie). these trails were getting overgrown with weeds and at least four trees were down across the trails . I hope they will have a work day soon . Spine was appropriately named I would like to do it again once it is cleared of weeds.

    Great trail system. Well kept and trails are well marked. I recommend Fast and Loud if you enjoy jumps and berms.

    Have ridden this twice now on commute between Atlanta and Nashville. Pretty convenient from the interstate.

    Good mix of hills and level areas. Rode the "Fast and Loud" trail which I think is pretty new. A good workout and a lot of fun. Several good, long climbs with accompanying fun, long downhills with many jumps/rollers.

    My only complaint is that even though there is a good bit of signage on the trails they can be confusing since there are a lot of intersections, many of which are not labeled.

    I live in Dalton so this is my go-to-trail if I need to get a quick ride. It is great for beginners because there is a 4-mile loop that is wide, with the only obstacles being the occasional root garden. I also like that there are designated trail directions based on the day, and runners/hikers go in the opposite direction. There are 4 or 5 expert loops, each of which is pretty short with one exception, Fast and Loud. Fast and Loud only opened recently. Great berms, table-tops, good downhills, and long climbs. Rooty-tooty is another expert loop that is short, but exquisite. I only gave 3/5 because I can ride the entire trail system in under 2 hours - so I wish it was longer. But for beginners, it's a 5/5.

    There are 4 trail systems here from beginner to intermediate. They are not half that bad actually. I mainly gave it 3/5 because I don't like the way signage is set up. Other than that the trails are well maintained.

    You can make this trail system as difficult or as easy as you like. There are plenty of options to make a quick ride or an intense workout. The close proximity to the city makes it easy to access for Dalton residents. Altogether, this is my go-to trail!

    You can make this trail park as easy or as difficult as you want. There are plenty of options for an easy or difficult ride. Close proximity to the city make it easy to get a quick ride in without packing up for the day. Easy access and endless options make this my go-to trail!

    Fun place to ride. It may seem like you ride alot, but there a just several trails to take that aren't very long in distance. But it's a good spot to go for beginner's to intermediates like myself. I was able to get a good workout in.

    I was impressed with how well the trails are marked and the posted trail maps at all of the major intersections. Very fun to ride here and friendly for beginners yet nice to have the intermediate and advanced loops. My only gripe is that the trail is so short. Would be nice to have more than double the length but you can only work with the space you have I guess.

    Rode here with my wife and sons. Overall easy to follow signage, but map is handy. Fun for the most part, but trail has been widened by bobcat in many spots making it less challenging (bet this was really fun when it was true singletrack). The "optional" loops were great. Some rocks/roots and steeper (short) climbs kept it interesting. Not a destination type trail, but definitely worth the ride if you're in the area. Thanks to all for keeping up the trails, us "flatlanders" from Coastal GA appreciate all of your hard work!

    Great trail system. Make sure you pay attention to the trail markers cause it can get confusing. But still a lot of fun.

    Almost a year to the day I make it back to RW. This place has gotten better with age. Well marked, clean and fast singletrack. All the advance trails are just that roots, short burst of climbing, fast decent, good jumps and some great berms.
    Great trail head with picnic area and plenty of parking. Donations are welcome it's what makes this all possible. Now get out and ride!

    My riding buddy and I rode this trail today. It had some good climbs and nice downhills. The trails were fast and well maintained, however there were some trails that needed maintenance and most trails were not clearly marked. The lack of clearly marked trails made it confusing at times and led to some backtracking.

    Nice set of trails. A little wet after all the rain but that just made it more interesting.
    Recommend riding this place.
    Now get out and ride!
