Quiet hike through woods Sunday morning. Worked fine with tennis shoes. Trail in good shape and would work great for trail runners. We did section south of 4 mile road. Easy to walk back on 4 mile if you only want to do 1/2. Not much traffic.

Great trail,pretty buggy in the summertime however. Trails are narrow and not ideal for when hikers come across bikers so stay alert.

Very nice trailway. I liked the option to deviate onto other paths too.

The trailhead was easy to find, but I did have some trouble staying on the trail when attempting the loop. It was a recent snowy day, but it was easy to see the trail. It was the various side trails where I must have taken a wrong turn. It was hunting season and I did see a hunter out. I wore a bright shirt but he still warned me to make sure I was seen. I continued my run but not being shot was certainly on my mind while running. Overall, a great run on a nice trail.

I would not call it a river but a very nice clean creek. took my mom and a little over 4 hours to complete the 7.2 mile loop with the dogs.

great trail, if your hiking go the opposite way. (start from the parking lot trail head) latest storms have left some trees in the path, but 99% of the trail is fine

Excellent moutain biking loop!

The trail on the map is The Cannonsburg State Game Area trail. Cannonsbug Ski Area has its own set of trails north of the trail mapped here. The two tracks are separate but there is a path linking them if you know where to look.

Great for Mt. Biking! Runners and hikers should go the reverse direction of bikers to avoid collision.

Great Running or Biking Trail. Varied. Lots of steeps and tight switches. Great MTB for intermediate biker. Total trail 8 miles but can be shortened to about 5 miles

Awesome trail for mountain biking. The are a few gnarly hills to get your legs burning and some pretty technical areas. I would only recommend this trail to a somewhat experienced biker. This trail is the same as the Egypt Valley Trail.

Really a great place to bike or hike. The ski hill is quite a climb, but once you get to the top you are rewarded with a terrific view. If you're in the area, I'd recommend stopping by and seeing what you can find! There's also a nice stream before you reach the skill hill that is enjoyable.

Great MTN bike trail, not for a true beginner but I rode it with my 13yr old son. It has some good climbs and a few technical areas, not too rutted out but there is a fair amount of loose sand depending on weather. Its also 6 or 7 miles not 3 as in the description. Trail head is at the parking lot of the ski area and then head towards the hills and go left after you cross the creak.
