When someone posts a trail and describes it as "sweet single track" I expect to be able to ride it. This is not the case with this trail in it's current condition. I tried to ride the red diamond, white diamond, blue dot, and several unnamed side trails. There is absolutely no trail maintenance going on, and several of the trails are overgrown to the point that they are dangerous (vines grabbing handlebars, obscuring obstacles and holes, etc.). For part of the ride I spent more time busting brush and clearing crud out of my drive train than actually riding.
20 miles of trails is definitely a step in the right direction, but they need considerable work. And in case anyone was wondering, pieces of rebar and iron pipe sticking straight up 4"-6" in the middle of the trail are not valid mountain bike obstacles. They're just dangerous. * Review edited 8/17/2008
