This is an absolutely amazing trail, it's not perfect but the challenge is sweet. It's a little root riddled in areas when dry and makes for a lump ride and a swap currently (May 15th, 2017). I won't likely return until I'm sure it's completely dry. I came to hike the whole loop and 95% of the trail is a swap. I've gone 3 miles in 1.5 hours mostly on a trail of logs and dry patch jumping. It's totally kicked my butt. Also when you finish do a thorough check for ticks or shower here in the camping area, they're nice. Cheers

All of the largest impassable trees have been cut and cleared as of yesterday. There's also been some trimming of hangers and grabbers on a fair amount of trails. Kudos to the staff and volunteers. With the lack of rain the trail is 98% dry and riding well.

Several large trees down again - at least one is impassable. The quicker sections are getting hard packed - nice for some faster runs. A good number of stream crossings could use some clean out. People keep putting debris there to do who knows what. Either fill more debris in to bridge or don't fill it with random crash bait. Stray branches or thorn grabbers need cut. Maybe a work day is in need.

Fun trail to hike, took a lot of ads as my kids and 65 year old father went with me. Had a great time very scenic. if it rains trail will be very sloppy. POISON IVY is everywhere. Trail is marked every half mile for the 9 mile length of trail. Did I mention the poison ivy?

A fun loop in either direction - maybe more fun clockwise. Take note of the day based directional signage:

Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Sunday - Counter Clockwise

Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday - Clockwise (Traditional)

- Very rooted in some parts
- Handful of man-made mini features (berm, log jumps, balance bridges/logs, teeter totter, creek bridges) some maintained better than others.
- Muddy after rain as mentioned
- 2-3 VERY large trees down in the trail
- Poison Ivy in ABUNDANCE

fantastic MTB trail. Mostly flat with some fun ups and downs near the 3/4 way mark. Going to do this trail every year.

This is a 10 mile loop broken in to 4 sections. Avoid in wet condition it gets a little slippery. The trail flows real well and has some cool obstacles. Fall is the best season to ride the trail. Plan for a full day of fun
