Not a bad trail but I guess I expected more based on the other reviews below. There were a couple of nice features but overall the trail didn't seem like anything special. It would have been REALLY nice if the trail was labelled. As silly as it sounds I'm really glad I brought the map from this site as it saved me a lot of time as there are trails crossings everywhere. I'd ride it again but wouldn't go out of my way to ride this trail.
Please take my comments with a grain of salt because I haven't ridden any other trails in the area to compare this trail to. It is also possible that I missed some of the awesome features that others have mentioned as I only rode 14 miles of trail. Once again, some better trail markings would have been helpful. My comments are based on comparing this trail to the trails I usually ride back in the midwest which I would say are more technical.
If it's your first time to this trail I would HIGHLY recommend parking next to the self storage place at Alessandro and Barton rd. or near JensonUSA. This will save you the LONG (but great lung/leg workout) uphill climb to get up the top where the main features of the trail are if you started at the Central Ave trailhead.
