Loved it!! Will go back again and again. It’s a good work out. Lots of curves in the trails. Well maintained. Very pretty there.

Started at the temporary trail head at Art Van sports complex. Trail is mainly a mountain bike trail. Lots of switch backs a few bridge and ramps for mountain biking. If I had a mountain bike this would be the place to ride the trails. Views of forest which is always nice. Great weather to hike. We (my wife and daughter) were the only people hiking along the trail. Trail was hard pack dirt with some sand and roots.

We ran every inch of this trail and loved it! It's obviously designed for mountain biking but we had a lot of fun. They designated different directions for the bikes every other day which makes it easier to go with or against the bikes when running. The ups and downs and switchbacks kept us on our toes. Signage is great and it is very well maintained. Will definitely be back!

Well-kempt trail but not much to look at. Busy with bike traffic on the weekends.
