1/1/16 - After an extremely enjoyable hike with friends, we were chatting afterwards by our vehicles, when we observe an unattended dog on a rock for approximately 10 minutes. Eventually three cyclists emerge from the main trail with this dog following. The dog immediately runs over to us, we asked the owner to control her as we have dogs, unfortunately she does not listen and the owner must take her away by the collar. Approximately 15-20 minutes later the dog is back at our vehicles and we repeat our request to her owner to leash her and remind him that there is a leash requirement. It is frustrating and irritating the people like this are encountered.

I hiked the main trail around the pond a week prior to taking the mountain bike. From the parking lot, I took the red marked trail on the right side. This trail is very technical in some areas. I wouldn't recommend it to a new biker, but for an experienced rider this trail offers plenty of challenges. I found the trail very rocky with lots of large boulders and cliff-like rock to ride along. Some really nice views in the woods. This time of year(August) the streams and mud are non-existent. You can certainly see where the streams would normally flow. I imagine spring and fall would be wetter. Overall I only ride 5.4 miles on the right side of the pond. It looks like the other side offers even more extensive trails, so I will def return for more. Update to follow!
