Trail Description
About this trail
The trail area is in a bird sanctuary. There is a outerloop which is for horses and hikers, and is prohibited. The inner loop is the mountain bike loop. The trail consists of singletrack hard pack clay-dirt. There are just enough small rocks and roots to make the trail entertaining. There are NO steep ups or downs, logs, drops, or jumps. The trail does have great flow and if ridden fast, the mild ups and downs mixed with very fun corners makes it a trail to check out at least one time. The biggest downfall is the short length. However, if you take multiple laps as fast as possible the trail is very enjoyable and good practice for cornering [one way loop]. I will definately go back soon.

Review: This trail is complete crap. Almost completely overgrown (hit your head and sides on overgrowth the entire ride) and there are a few sketchy people living in the woods on the trail. Not safe!

Review: It's not worth the time it takes to reach this trail for a really lame loop with no flow.

Review: This 1 mile loop is short, but technical. Lot of ruts, rocks and roots and some short steeps. A bit challenging for true beginners. For a good workout, do numerous loops. Low spot on trail is always muddy and can be dangerous as deep mud in front of bridge can easily grab front wheel and send one over bars. This should be fixed!

Review: Ticks, ticks, ticks. Rode this on 8/19/13 and my son and I had about a dozen nymph-stage ticks on us afterwards each. Very small and barely visible, thankfully when they're on the move they are easy to spot, if they've latched on they are very hard to find. The trail itself was pretty good, I remember enjoying it at the time, but my memory is tempered by the frantic tick check.

Review: Rode the trail yesterday for the first time. It could really use some maintenance to cut back the foliage that constantly wants to smack you in the face. There was also a downed tree about 1/8 mile in blocking the whole trail that I had to walk my bike around. Fairly easy trail with some moderate ups and downs and a few areas that look like they stay wet and muddy. Overall a fun diversion from the paved path of the W&OD.

Review: I ride this once-twice a week and even at night. A friend and I have done some clearing in Sept 2012 that helped. The main loop is a good quick fix. Need to get approval to expand the trail system and add some technical factors. Keep checking for TICKS

Review: Newb to mountain biking and generally have a bit of a drive to get to trails for practice. If I'm not heading out for a long ride with the boy I've been riding the 6 miles to this trail on the W&OD, doing a few loops on this for some technical practice and then riding the 6 miles back home. I don't think it's too shabby of a workout, although, yeah it's very short. :) As a beginner, I'm glad it's nearby. Also (shudder) haven't experienced the poison oak or ticks yet ... hope I didn't jinx myself.

Review: This trail is short but good enough to get the urge out of your system. This trail splits not too long after the start. If you stay to the left of the split you wont get lost and complete the loop, however, if you go to the right it is not recommended for beginners. The right at first leads down to the creek but the trail quickly erodes. Im prettt sure I was riding on 2 foot long brush at one point. Luckily i got reconnected to the main loop. If you are bored of the regular loop and have some experience make a right at the first split. The main loop has some nice turns and you can catch some speed but its not a smooth trail by any means. I also got smacked by some overgrown trees. I dont know what poison oak looks like but i did get a small rash on my leg so avoid rubbing against any plant as much as possible. There seems to be two or three mudholes tht dont dry up. When i finish the loop i always check for ticks carefully, i have found them on me every time this week. Also noticed a very strong potent odor in the trail, think there might be skunks.

Review: Had to go around several times to get a workout. Lots of tall grass, shrubs, and tree branches spilling into the trail and hit your legs. Saw some poison oak and found a tick crawling on my leg when I got home. I would not ride here again.
