Review: Good trail. They packed a lot of trail into the space they had. Hardpacked and rooty in spots but overall decent trail.

Review: Fun, intermediate trail with a few tough rooty climbs and switchbacks. Overall very smooth, good flow, surprisingly scenic considering where it's located.

Review: Our new favorite trail! Wasn't on the top 50 list we are working to complete, but was recommended by the LBS. Glad we went. Great flow.

Review: Have yet to ride the trail, unfortunately it was closed 2-23-17.. FYI, they have a Facebook page that is updated frequently as to trail conditions and closures. I recommend you check before making the trip

Review: Great trail for getting the legs moving, machine-built, but lots of sharp corners and off-camber curves, not something you can shred consistently throughout. Clay base makes for awful chocolate accumulation after rains, sometimes mandating trail closures. Bumpy and hasn't smoothed out much over time with riding.

Review: Great trail, Not for beginners! This trail will spook newbies, there are lot's of places you don't want to fall off the trail. A lot of it is cut into the side of some pretty steep hills. I can't help but compare this trail to Merrell in Rockford but it doesn't have quite as smooth of a flow. Turns are a bit sharper, hills are a bit steeper, and have to use the brakes more. Note that this trail is one of the last to open in the spring (May?) and will be closed anytime it rains, sometimes for a couple of days afterwards.

Review: Great fun trail with flow. Direction depends on the day of the week. Well maintained. If you love the Merrell trail then you will love this as well, just a little shorter and easier.

Review: Rock hard clay with a dusty top, thankfully my plus size tires can handle it. Flow seemed a little erratic at times, soon as you got a little speed it was on the brakes for a flat tight turn. Could use a few more berms to help keep the speed up. Overall, trail is ok, i's stay away if its wet though, the clay would be like ice.

Review: I'm an enduro lover so this wasn't the place for me. It's like Phaser at Merrell, but more upward inclined and without many berms.

Review: Fun trail! Like a longer version of the Phaser section of Merrill trail (downhill direction). Kinda short but plenty of climbs and rocks and roots to keep you focused. I would definitely ride it again.
