Majority of the riding is on gravel roads. We found ourselves passing trail after trail closed to horses. I didn’t like being confined to the gravel. This is not a good place to ride. Loading and unloading is right on Hwy 99. This should not be listed for horses

love this trail system. I generally wonder all over to try and get closer to my goal of 20 miles a day

Only giving a 3 due to lack of scenery and confusing trail markings. My friend and I walk a good portion of this trail but not the whole thing. We ended up going off on some other trails (Section 36 loop, etc).

One of my favorite trails! Especially nice if you take some of the little side loops like the Old Growth Trail and the Vineyard Mountain Trail.

Great hike and workout. Not real well marked for the amount of trails that can be accessed up here. Can get turned around pretty easy if you don't pay attention. I was second guessing myself a couple of times and made the correct turns to get back to the parking area. Overall a great area, not a ton scenic views.

This trail is a great workout but a little light on the scenery. At the time I was intending to hike the smaller loop but must have failed to get on the right trail, which leads me to my next point. The trail is not very well marked. Definitely worth seeing but take someone with you who has been there before. If it were a Ducks hiking trail it would have been better marked :p
