Flowy, a term that makes your chamois moist for days, kind of like the term selfie makes the bunny ears on your iPhone case perk up with a rubbery twang, all while you dream of never having to put your feet down and get your bunny slippers, that match your aforementioned phone case dirty, unless you step down to take a macro shot of a dandelion seed pod for all your instagram followers that never seen one before. Run-on sentence? Yeah I'm a mountain biker, not a blogger who drives a VW when my long board won't get me there, so sue me and go back to listing to your Indie rock. This isn't that type of trail. This is a man's trail. Things like Burl, Gnar, and Paul Bunyan riding Babe like a surf board, spitting on Johnny Appleseed come to mind. You pedal up hill, you pedal down hill. There is very little momentum to be carried here. There's rock gardens, roots, overgrowth and rattlesnakes big enough to swallow bunny slippers.
This is a great trail system and has well over 30 miles of trails. Wildlife is abundant and this mountain combines sandstone mountain and black dirt mountain, and everything in between. I recommend fall or early spring since it does get overgrown in the summer.
