I do a lot of trail running here. Horses and bikes ok on most trails. Not a difficult path.

Fun fun fun trail. Great obstacles and they have go arounds for you if you need them. Im relatively new to mountain biking but i had a ton of fun on this trail and i imagine even skilled riders would find this to be a challenge.

Amazing trail for a good vigorous walk - have to watch carefully to not get lost as trail can take you to the road causing you to double back.

I went hiking but this trail is more for mountain bikers. Also when you go to make the change from blue to red trail, make sure you look behind you when you come up to splits because the sign is badly placed. I went almost 2 miles out of the way. Pretty scenery, quiet when I went. Still fun even though I was exhausted after the extra two miles haha

Love this trail. The best jersey has to offer. Great jumps and technical spots. Can get crowded at times but just watch for corners.

Will definitely do this trail again. Far more mountain bikers than hikers- but no issues sharing the trails.

Started trial at 7:30pm . By 8:10 pm sun went down . Beware *** this trail gets very very very dark . Thank GOD I had lights on my bike cause I wouldn't be able to see shit if I didn't have the light. I got lost in the trail all alone . Scary shit! .. Well I really didn't get lost, it was just super dark. Missed the turn to head back, ended up on route 27 . Should had never cross the street (south middlebush) to start the other trail. Overall, great trail will venture out again during the day .

Note: I turned all my lights off just to see if I could see the trails. Couldn't see NOTHING! Not even my hands in front of me! . I'm laughing now but it was definitely some scary shit!

This is a awesome place to go for anyone looking to do mountain biking. The trails are very well made, and I was amazed at how good they flow. There is a lot of inclines and declines and not so many roots and rocks which allows you to get some good speed. Also there is a lot of cool jumps, boardwalks, bridges etc... I would highly recommend this park to anyone who is looking for some great mountain biking trails.

The trail was poorly marked and I ended up taking the wrong trail for about 1.5 miles. This was also my first time mountain biking and these weren't beginner friendly trails. This trail could also be better if my brother didn't throw a tantrum.
