For a mountain bike trail, this makes a great running trail. I wondered why, on a crystal clear day with 75 degree temps, this place was deserted. What I saw was a lot of wasted space and potential. Instead of winding the trail through and around the mountains, there are sharp climbs and steep descents and only a few miles of poorly designed trails. The technical section is not laid out very well, lacking any kind of flow and consisting mostly of dips, steep climbs, and super-narrow track to make it technical. More than half the system is rutted dirt road resembling powerline trails. Also, I just don't think a downhill 90 degree turn with a log in the middle of the turn is a good idea. And you should never come out of a blind low-speed turn directly into a 3 foot deep dip. I know this is a brutal review, but the trail just seemed like it was laid out by people who never rode a bike off-road. I know that's not true but that was the way it felt. It needs A LOT of work.* Review edited 5/2/2008
Thankfully, there is nothing similar to this.
