There is 8 miles of actual multi-use trails here in 6 loops, but when you add on the gravel road to get form one part of the system to the other, it adds up to 11.7 miles. Almost all forest, there is only two short stretches through grassy fields that you'll have to go through.

great horseback trail. large parking area. it has a variety road riding, hills and flat trails rocky areas and sandy areas. ponds and spring feed tiny creeks for horse water. Never muddy has a couple of bridges to cross. we have seen dear, turkey, turtles opposum and other wildlife. They do allow hunting so avoid it during gun dear season.

Great chilly afternoon hike. Snow accumulation this morning but dry and sunny this afternoon.

This trail IS will maintained. However, that maintenance makes it really tough for a bike in some places. Be prepared for large, loose gravel in some places...and the erosion barriers on the steep hill will force you to get off and walk at times.

Saw lots of deer tracks. We went in the middle of the day so we didn't see any wildlife but in the early morning or late afternoon you probably would.
