We had a great hike today. Ash and I did almost 7 miles. I would think we would see more wildlife. We saw a snake squirrel frogs and another big spider. I followed the red trail and it came out at foster creek which is so pretty.

This was a good hike. Ash and I enjoyed it and will return. I should have continued past the sanitation facility. Next time we will go farther

The trail is fantastic. It provides good obstacles, terrain variance, and switch backs. The trail has a lot of roots, so if you aren't used to riding with roots be prepared for a bumpier ride.

It is well marked for the red trail. The blue bypass & yellow technical trails could be better marked off of the red trail. I also wished they had each section labeled on the trail like they do on the actual map at the trail head.

Some of the mile markers are facing the wrong direction of you are riding counterclockwise (which is the way they say to ride this trail).

This trail is on the Navy base and helmets and military ID is required.
Love it for mountain biking, the views were awesome and the variety of trails can't be beat. I would give it 5 stars if there weren't so many roots, brace yourself for a rough ride.
