trails are barely marked. i’m very thankful for the trail map on this app - the trails are not well marked at all, and my hiking partner and i had to open the map from here and use a compass to find our way back to civilization. lots of bikers on the trails, which was fine because there are so many trails. well maintained, they just really need proper markers.

Although it says it's a hiking trail it really is mostly a mountain bike trail. It wasn't crowded but there were a few sets of bikers so we had to stop and step to the side. But, the trail was fun and I might do it again.

Trail was nice, but they really need to label the different trails more efficiently

great place to get to if you need to get a bike ride in and out quick, a good workout there's a couple of nice Black Diamond areas where you do some nice climbing..

This was my first time with my wife on this trail and we like it. It is good for beginner although there are lots of roots, its not too hilly mostly flat.

Rode this trail today. Just started mountain biking and this trail was pretty competitive. A lot of mud spots but I'm sure on the drier days its better. Enjoyed the turns and hills but trails are tight. In my upper 40's so I will continue on this trail until I complete it. Overall I enjoyed this trail and for sure recommend it but not for beginners.

Rode it today last time was about 4 years ago. Took the fat boy. It's definitely a entry level trail yet a lot of fun only 3 climbs to speak of but non the less a good ride it's a good trail to keep a really good pace going all through out. Had a little trouble following signs to cover all the ground. Made a few u turns. It's a good trail to start the season off to get the legs warmed up. And handling back. Not my favorite but fun.

This is a great trail, it's certainly one of the nicest I've ran in a while. There are usually some cyclist but it's quiet and serene, definitely still a great place to run and well worth the hike. (no pun intended)

I used the hiking trail for a practice run with all my backpacking gear. Hiked about 5 miles. The hiking trails runs along side the bike trail. There were no hikers on the trail, but some bikes would go by . Trail is well marked and very peaceful

I'm pretty new to mountain biking but I love this trail. It's challenging and fun. The main loop is only 4.2 miles if you don't go on any of the black diamond trails. A lot of fun downhills and logs to jump over.

This is a great beginner trail! It is also a fun ride for the more experienced biker. It has a few hilly areas, but it is the sand traps that will get you! I love the trick or treat cut, don't miss it!
