even though signs say for bikes to yield to hikers, that isn't how it works. self preservation demands that hikers yield to bikes. trail is way to narrow to walk next to someone or to pass another party (on foot or on wheels) without stepping to the side. beautiful scenery though.

great for biking. It'll be muddy/ wet for at least a day after rain. some trails have challenging parts but most are easy overall. Only one trail is clearly marked no bikes and if you go on it you'll know. I don't know why the hikers are complaining, it's a multi use trail for non motorized activities. bikes are allowed.
ps - a big thank you to the groups that help maintain this trail system.

No Dogs? How about no mountain bikes on the trails that are marked hiking only and how about not tearing the hiking trail markers down so you can ride. Nice during the week weekends too busy. Never did see a no dogs sign

Six Mile Run is the name of the stream that runs through the property; don't be confused and think that's the distance of the trails. I've been enjoying the trails at 6MR since 2002 and love them. Mountain bike use has increased drastically over the years, but I still enjoy them for trail running and hiking. Most cyclists say "thank you" when you jump into the poison ivy for them. :-)

Nice ride color coded paths could be marked better, few obstacles not overly difficult if riding for the first time would recommend giving yourself a few hrs and pending on skill maybe not doing it solo all together a good ride be safe!!!

NOT dog or walking friendly. This is a heavily used mountain bike trail. I will say the gentleman at the entrance warned us. We walked in 1.3 miles and walked right back out. Wasn't worth the stress to my dog and us constantly having to get out of the way.
