Just rode this for the first time while camping with family down at Bullards Beach SP just 8 miles down the road. Spent about 2hrs exploring most all the trails. A little confusing at first and pic of map on phone was required many times to negotiate since i rode as many sections as i could to get a feel for the place. Initial impresion was they are pretty much just moto and atv trails that are open to bikes as well. The trails in logged sections weren't that great and had to pedal a lot of loose gravel fireroad to get to many of the trail sections. With that said, there were some fun trail sections with tons of fun, challenging roots (8-Ball) and a few good, steep pitched sections to romp thru too. Even though there seemed to always be sounds of gun fire in the near distance, i felt like i had the forest and trails to myself which was kind of cool, minus fresh bear dung of course. Gets kind of a lower rating from me cause i only found about 1/3 of the ride and trails at most to be kind of worthwhile out of about a dozen sections. I did appreciate the solitude while being right off of hwy 101 and some nice little patches of dense forest with some fun, yet challenging root sections to keep me engaged. Might ride again if down in area only, but not until i ride the Blue Ridge trails about 15 miles NE if there on our next annual family camping trip down that way.
