Trail Description
About this trail
I just rode it once and it needs to be added. There are about 15 miles of trails and I'd say they are pretty easy.

Review: Could be a nice trail but desperately needs some trail maintenance. Some points of trail are hard to even find at times. Not really designed to be MTB trails but still it's better than nothing and I'll ride there again.

Review: Rock hawk has a ton of really cool trail. Enough for many hours of great riding. sure there're a few rocks, mostly small. Model-T and Upper T are especially vigorous. It has plenty of hills and switch backs both ways, and requires a lot of energy. The whole system is hilly and fun. Loads of challenges. Some intersections are unmarked or poorly marked, but most of the numbered ones from maps are there. I was glad for pads, just not a lot of soft landing spots out there.

Review: Some fun sections but overall not to much to see.
I did The Model-T, 22, and I good portion of the orange .You can tell it doesn't get ridden much as its a very rugged trial, thick with leaves and lots of fallen branches/tress. Lots of basic double track and the more advanced single tracks are pretty technical with lots of roots and rocks and not to many fast or flowing sections. Pretty basic trial and would only recommend if you're looking for something that has more of a raw, untouched, and natural feel to it.

Review: Upper T - If you LOVE Rocks, this trail is for you. Zero flow. A great technical challenge. There are switchbacks I had to walk down. That's humbling. At some unknown point the trail becomes... Model-T - A bit more flow. A few less rocks. An actual Model T along the trail. At first I thought its name came from being such a bumpy ride. Yellow - Started near the grave yard cut over. Smooth double track. Headed toward... The Talon - Fun rock gardens. Less rock torture. About 25% Flow(or less). A great fun trail. Less technical than Model-T in a good way. Still PLENTY of challenge.

Review: Orange trail is good beginners trail. Not too many obstacles but a few long hills. Took wife here for 1st mountain bike ride and she enjoyed it.

Review: I love this trail and ride it often. To whomever it is that took the time to create and now maintain this trail....helmets off, awesome job! It's a classic SE USA trail, if you want technical then speed up, if not then take it slow. The Model T is my favorite section and I would say it is technical with lots of rocks, some nice switchbacks and good elevation change, very tight and twisty. After the Model T it is a nice relief to let it rip all the way to the bottom of the green trail below the dam. Hardly ever anyone on the trail and it's almost always in great shape.

Review: Rode twice in the last couple weeks. The colored trails(double track) are great for beginners. There are several single track trails that branch off that offer more of a technical challenge. The leaves can make it difficult to navigate and follow some of the single track this time of year.

Review: Heads-up for Rock Hawk users: All of the singletrack has been blown clear with the exception of a 1.5 section of the "22" trail. The "Talon" trail has not been cleared, and won't be for the immediate future (we've got to re-route this trail). We'll get some signs out there indicating that...sorry. I promise we'll have this thing in tip-top shape after turkey season (5/15), with some additional signage, as well. Thanks, RH Trail Volunteers

Review: Some fun easy wide trails with great signage, some almost unmarked leaf-covered rocky trails that are more not-fun than "advanced". I wouldn't make the trip here unless you're in the area, and while the main wide trails are great for a ride with beginners or kids, the 'advanced' trails aren't in very good shape and are almost impossible to follow in places. A map is definitely required, and the trails that aren't on the guidemap at the start mostly aren't worth riding. That said, if you're looking to camp on a lake in a park with non mountain bikers, and you end up here, definitely bring your mountain bike for some quick spins in various directions.

Review: Good trails and some cool spots where you ride right down onto the waters edge on granite outcropping (McCleans Loop). Do yourself a favor and print a copy of the green map that JAG3 posted a pic of in the "photos" tab. It shows the singletrack spots as opposed to the maps at the trails which only show the main trails which are mostly boring, easy doubletrack. The Green trail was closed for maintenance so I missed out on the Model T but all the others were pretty cool. The singletrack trails are tight and twisty with a good amount of technical challenge. Just be careful as the fall leaves made it pretty hard to follow the trail at times. Definitely would like to come back here in a few months when the trails are cleared off a bit more. Best of all, no horses allowed so the trails stay in decent shape.

Similar Trail: Tribble Mill without the "spaghetti layout" feel to the trails.
