A mountain bike only trail with everything for every rider. From the main gate head north towards the trees, cross the road and up Socialist Valley Rd (probably not marked) to second gate. Follow fire road (don't go left on to Rickreall Rd, probably not marked) until you come to the basic training park. Take a few moments to practice on whatever obstacle you want (if you are into that & have the right bike), at least try the practice see-saw. Follow the fire road to the top of Mt. Brown (last 300 feet is single track), total climb is about 1,250 ft. Once on top, follow the single track to your left, at the "Y" go left for the easier trail, right is a black trail. Now enjoy 2.5 miles of downhill single track. On this trail, all jumps and obstacles have a ride around so you can try them or not. All jumps have manufactured landings. You'll cross the fire road at least twice, so look out for riders at those points. The trails are marked in places. Last 300 ft might be muddy. You will end your ride at the 2nd gate.

since this is primarily a mountain bike area, if you bring a dog, you can only stay on the road. it does lead to the top and a beautiful view, but you need to watch out at the crossings.

If you are hiking, then it’s best you stay on the main road as the rest of the area is either private property or designed for mountain biking. There are two vehicle gates so plan to park before you reach the bridge. Portable toilets and picnic tables are available about half way in. It’s wooded for most of the trail with a decent view at the summit.

Mostly meant for biking, but still a great hike as long as you stay aware of your surroundings. I'd love to go back!

Previous poster is an idiot, it is clearly posted as a mtn bike only area. But it is spectacular. Well laid out by lots of volunteers, tons of jumps, wood features and huge drops. Highly recommended!!! Check out http://brmba.org/ for more info
