Very fun trail system. I rode West Fork, to Quartz Loop, to Riverview Loop, to Chestnut, to Thunderrock, totalling about 13 mi and was pretty happy with this route. The climb on the fire road at the beginning, and on West Fork was pretty tough to me, but once I got to the Quartz Loop, I had a lot of fun. I really like that there is a lot of rocky chunder at this place. The views were also great, as well. It was pretty wet and mucky when I was here, so I feel like I had to ride a little slower, which made it not quite as fun as it could have been. I had a lot of fun on Thunder Rock at the end, although I wish it would have been a little longer. As mtbgreg said, I feel like this place could be even better if there were less fire-road connectors.
