first time we went here, the trail varied from medium to hard. but it was an amazing ride. it is well marked and beaten. only went off the trail once. there are difficult trails off the main trail, again well marked. we did not do the full 15 miles, there are plenty of points to cut the trail down a bit. cannot wait to go again.

As a hiking trail, this is just OK. The terrain is pretty even, the woods are quiet, and the wildlife is abundant--but this trail is owned by mountain bikers. A fine crew but a fast one, which requires that you pay attention to who/what's coming up behind you.

I got a solid 8 miles out of this park by setting off at the trailhead and linking up with the series of foot paths that start about a 1/2 mile in. I went from the blue trail to the yellow to the red to make a big loop that made the most of this pine barren park, while avoiding/not inconveniencing the bikers. If you follow my advice, keep an eye on your GPS as you approach the connections to the other colored trails. They can be easy to miss.

Set out early! I started at 5:30am and was the only person around. When I existed the wood around 9am the lot was completely full.

Along the way, I startled a few deer, found a turtle eating a mushroom on the trail, spotted a slew of birds, and past a bunch of knee high anthills.

It was my first time Mountain biking and I loved it! Can't wait to do it again

Love this place. So peaceful. I suggest wearing legit bug spray. I've had run-ins with ticks and chiggers.

A great 9.5 mile loop! Very well marked, (a couple of tricky spots, but nothing serious) excellent single track. For the most part it is fairly flat except for one hill. There is never really anyone else out there. I have ran it many many times now and will continue to do so. Trails are buffed out, no roots or rocks. Just watch out for chiggers and ticks in the summer time. Spray bug spray all over socks, sneakers, legs and the rest of your body. Got a bad case of chiggers when I didn't spray myself in August. Otherwise, you should be good. No hiking/running in January, firearm hunting season

Theres a sign at the beginning that says something like "hunting permitted from October to April". Really? An environmental conservation area where people hike and bicycle is also a hunting ground? Yes, some of the trail markers and signs are blasted with buckshot holes. But as a biking trail, it's enjoyable. Probably a lot more adrenaline inducing after October 1st though, when some kid with a 20 gauge shot gun could mistake you for a deer. I'd go again.
