Review: Back to my Alma Mater (MSHRM '94). This was sweet single track that lets you ride fast. Great for beginners, some small to medium roots with a few grades but nothing steep. Two log obstacles, the first is easily bypassed, both under 18". Route was 4.5 miles. Leaf covered and might get sandy in spots with use or in long dry spells but I was through it so fast I question mentioning it at all. Fun short ride and worth trying it. Thanks to the builders - where were you 40 years ago?

Review: The ride was great. The forest has started blooming with new leaves and bushes so the landscape has changed since my last ride in the winter. A few big roots here and there but nothing too crazy.

Review: A bit rooty but this beginner made it through. Trail was in good condition after a pretty hard downpour. Drains well.

Review: Fun trail for the area. Rode it on 6/6/17 after two hard days of rain the trail was in awesome shape. No mud, no ruts, no standing water. It drains very well. Props to the locals who maintain this trail. It's short, but fun. It's worth stopping by if you are in the area.

Review: If your in the area and want to explore these trails can offer about an hour of riding. Like all trails in the area there relatively flat. There are more roots and technical features than the nearby forever wild trails but don't expect anything crazy...

Review: I am a 52 year old re-starter (beginner) with diabetes and found the trail very challenging for me. I only made 3.5 of the 4.4 miles before I hit the service road. It has rained every day for three days prior to the ride including three hour before we road and the trail was not too bad. Some roots. My riding partner just finished and said part of the trail is flooded and has a tree that has falling in the trail. But we had a blast. I look forward to riding again soon.

Review: This is my local trail where I am learning to mountain bike. I am a rather timid beginner that only started mountain biking about four months ago. I ride this trail 2-3 times per month and am slowly honing my skills. Then a couple times per month I take my skills on the road to ride other trails in AL, FL, and GA. I personally enjoy riding this trail because it helps me to improve. There are short uphills and downhills, roots, sand (normally not deep), and turns that I can practice on without having to drive a super long distance. This is a nice trail for locals or someone passing through and it is well-maintained. It is a beginner trail so the more advanced riders can just pedal faster to get a great workout! There are no restrooms or changing rooms available, so you might want to plan accordingly. The city of Dothan, AL is nearby with lots of nice restaurants to enjoy after a ride (and Sunday beer sales! Yay!).

Review: Nice beginner level trail. Some roots and sandy spots. No big climbs but enough change in elevation to get the heart rate up if you push the pace. Trail is a bit short but doing several laps solves that. My buddy and I both enjoyed the trail in reverse more than the traditional direction.

Review: Introduced my GF to mountain biking on this trail. She was intimidated the first time. Went off and rode more trails and boosted her confidence, now she loves this trail! Good for beginners, but they will need some confidence and some bike handling skills. I'd say it's perfect for any skill level as there is enough to create your own challenges, whether working on speed, endurance, crossing a couple logs, or trying to stick in the trail in soft sand on tight corners. Simply an enjoyable trail when you just want to ride not too far away from town.
