The multiple trails are cool, but navigating and signage are lacking. Planning to go again to go on more different trails.

So I went on this trail system in early August. While the trails are generally marked well, there was often no trail. I think this is a great snow-shoeing and cross-country skiing site, but not necessary hiking. As far as I could tell, everything marked EASY (south side) was just a worn down vehicle path. Everything that was marked HARD didn't exist, the sign was there, but no trail, just 4-foot tall grass; to me, that isn't a trail. I would encourage winter sports enthusiasts to give this a go, but otherwise, I was a bit disappointed.

Great trail. Some good up and down and very open pine woods. The only thing I didn't like was dodging the cow chips. The trails were easy to lose, though well marked.
