Check out my description above for deers on the trail. But as for analysis, in addition to the rather poor trail building techniques (rake and ride, fall line trail, poor flow in places), connecting all of the singletrack bits together using the gravel roads and ATV trails is pretty difficult. Despite signs at many of the junctions and printed trail maps at the trailhead, I still took a wrong turn at least once and had to backtrack a couple of miles.
All that said, there's a lot of riding to be done here, and you can get in a solid workout. I was waffling back and forth between two and three stars, but considering the lack of other mountain biking opportunities close by (although CAMBA isn't too far in the grand scheme of things), I decided to round up to a three-star rating. But put this trail in Colorado? 2 stars would be generous.
