Ran from End to End, plus some of the fire roads. Kind of swampy in spots without bridges, and definitely under groomed. Would be an awesome Trail with more care.
I ride this for a change from chewacla occasionally... Much less maintenance is done here, much better once plants have died back (later in winter), however still sandy, and still some more technical climbs/drops. Best to start on west side of trail and ride east first unless you want to climb out at the end. Much less switchbacks than at chewacla ... Wear bright colors during hunting season!
Nice, long trail from beginning to end. Scenic views are few and far between, but there are a couple. Out and back trail, but not a very fulfilling trip. You end up in a dirt parking lot after almost nine miles then turn around and go back. Overall, fairly well maintained. No complaints there, it's an outdoor trail.. Could use a water station or something, it's tough to go 18 miles on what you can carry in water. Overall pleased.
More suited for horses, great place to break one... Has gun range also, this trail is in the Tuskegee National Forest. I rated this based on horses not hiking.
Bartram (North) is open to mountain biking. 8 miles out and back.
