Beautiful hike through the woods with a well balance of inclines, declines, as well as level terrain. I would rate the overall trail as moderate, this coming from an average hiker who exercises on a regular basis. I did the entirety of the main trail in just over 4 hours with some breaks along the way.

The lodge at parking area offers maps and clean restrooms as well as a nice view before you even begin the hike on the main trail. I just now noticed the description indicates that there is a waterfall on this trail. We must have missed this as we only witnessed some crossing streams on occasion. Other than the main lookout at the lodge the main trail does not have any major lookouts but was still an enjoyable woods trail.

A few spots with mud and higher weeds, but the path was extremely well marked and easy to follow. About halfway through the main trail there is an outhouse should that be a need along your way.

didn't do any hikes due to getting attacked by mosquitos within first 2 mins on trail, but the view of the skyline is beautiful & highly recommended to see - i can imagine how beautiful the view would be at sunset

My family and I attempted the Main Trail 3 times before finally completing it this spring! Easy terrain but can get muddy sometimes.

Pretty good XC riding, nothing too difficult and not very technical. A few trails have some nice wood features but some need maintenance. If you're looking for a nice fun downhill ride, Rippin, Unemployment, Dirtworks, and Vanderkamp are your best bets. Personally I would love to be able to build my own trail in some of the sections here, but that would be very frowned upon. Overall, the area is nice for XC but I believe it has potential for some much better trails including some downhill.

Not for the faint of heart! Literally - lots of cardio! There's a -lot- of up and down that I wasn't quite expecting, but plenty of flatter areas between to rest. The shelters were well placed for resting and the vast majority of the trek was shaded. No drinking water between start and finish, though - I'd say bring a camel pack with 1-2L capacity, and take it slow. Took me around 4 hours to complete. Expect that or longer. Definitely going again.

I went mountain biking here by myself the other day for the first time. I got lost a few times trying to find the bike specific trails, but the trails are well marked and easy to follow. The trails were nice and decently maintained. The map system is great but I regret not bringing a compass. Overall a great place to ride your bike
