    Good fun single track, good amount of climbing. Heart Break is one of the better trails here. Good trail features and optional lines.
    Check out these videos for a sense of the riding.

    This is a great trail... Probably just an edge above me.. the black diamond trails definitely are... but even the green trails are work getting up and down...

    We designed trails and most always seem to be dry, so a good set up.

    What is probably the most amazing thing about the trail... go there on a week day and you feel like you own it, no one there. For the most part even a lot of locals don't know about it

    Great trail system that keeps growing. Best for intermediate-expert as there is lots of climbing, some of it steep.

    Used to group ride here every week when I lived in Chestertown. All the trails in one continuous sequence always took about 1 1/2 hours with a few breaks. Feels like going uphill all the time, but full of features and ever-expanding (up, of course). New XC-ski trail has wiped out some of the super-tech "On The Rocks"

    I loved this trail. Mostly intermediate and above. You can tell it was professionally done. I would of course have more signage, but there are some signs, and there are spots where there is a kiosk showing the whole park, and that is better than 90 percent of trails. Some flow, some real fun tough stuff. I wouldn't call any of the trails truly beginner, although some parts of some trails are beginner

    Very fun network of single track. Nice climbs, runs that you can open up on, or if you like tight tech riding there are a couple of great trails to do that on as well. Lots of rocks to play on. Views are fantastic and you can bomb down into town for a beer or snack- Well worth the drive!
