really pretty! not marked exceedingly well, but it is marked. easy to go in circles and get lost if on foot. went just for a short walk to see since i’d never been, but will definitely be back. it’s pretty well shaded for the most part. lots of trees.

Great trail, beautiful! BE WARNED! LOTS OF BIKERS! constantly having to move over for the bikers. Wish there was a time for hiking only... I was a little nervous of a bike at the blind curves.

Had to get out and walk today. Tried this trail, the sign said closed but the trail was actually open so I went and walked. The trail's in good condition, mostly, there's some wet patches (we've had 11 days of rain) but for the most part the trail was in good condition. Some slippery leaves, some muddy areas but easy to walk the trail without too much slipping and sliding. I wouldn't recommend it for bike riding right now. I was totally alone on the trail other than a couple of squirrels racing ahead of me.

Tried this trail today as a hike and was very disappointed. It’s primarily used for biking, so we walked the opposite direction for safety. However, unlike other trails, it was not well-marked for walking and we had to rely solely on the app for directional guidance. Lots of trash, tons of dead brush, and signs that folks may be squatting in certain areas. Safety was a concern of mine, but that’s just me; you may not feel the same. Traffic noise throughout most of trail. Seems to be a great trail for bikers, but will not be returning to hike this again.

Definitely lots of mountain bikers so hike in opposite direction — they were nice and it’s just something to be aware of.

My boyfriend and I are new to mountain biking but really enjoyed the A and B loop. The trail was in great condition and we had a blast. Heavily shaded. One way trails so make sure you start in the right direction!

We are beginner mountain bikers and this was our first time here. The trail was narrow in some parts but overall a great time. The trailhead isn’t clearly marked to indicate “one way”, but be sure you start in a clockwise direction from the parking lot (basically enter the trail by the big map). Otherwise, you’re going backwards. Whoops! Blue arrows indicate easier paths; red are more difficult terrain. We will definitely come back. Good luck!

Do not go for hiking, bikes appear out of nowhere, you can either be run over or biker can crash into a tree, the site is a maze, no signs. Do not take your dog.

I did most of loop A, loop c, Cash extension, loop D and loop E. Lots of bikes since the trail was created by and is maintained by DORBA.

I didn't care for this trail much as a hiker. The path is way too narrow in places and bike riders can come out of nowhere like demons. I wish they weren't so aggressive on bikes so we could share the path more peacefully! Won't be doing this one again.

Pretty good! If you want to hike I would start on the right going against the bikers so you can move because they were going pretty fast, there was some only hiking trails that were very nice not to hard but a good workout.
