Trail map and markings were less than optimal, but we had a great time.

Great biking trail. I live close and like to ride once every couple weeks. BUMP does a great job maintaining and expanding the trail system! Hikers... I have never seen anyone hiking on this trail and I have been many times. I know I fly through as does everyone else so hikers should stay on the other multiple trails reserved for hiking.....
