HikingGreat!

A great trail system with well maintained trails. I recommend going on weekdays if you want there to be less people as the park is very popular among bikers on weekends. I've seen and heard lots of wildlife in the park including deer, coyotes, rabbits, and skunks. The road loop in is also a good walk if the trails are too muddy from rain.

Please stop using precious dirt on berms and more on stuff like jumps and features. Myself and many other riders have this same opinion on this certain topic and would love to see actually happen

This trail was very maintained and was a neat trail. However, I only gave 3 stars because we went today (Saturday) and there were so many bikers on the trails. We were hiking so having to constantly stop & step to the side of the trail really took alot of it's enjoyment away. However, if it would have been a day without so many bikers it would have been a 4 star trail.

Sin duda una pista larga pero muy divertida. Brincos, subidas, bajadas, mucha vuelta. Desde que empieza, te exige. Hay tramos de subida que los en largas S que son pesados, pero la bajada vale toda la pena; agarras muy buena velocidad y curvas abiertas para agarrar con toda confianza. Al final de la ruta, cierras con broche de oro con unos obstáculos para brincar.

Great place but super muddy after the rain. Wait a few days before coming and should be closed to all bike traffic. Fields are dry and trail is clean.

5/19/20 the trail was closed. Possibly due to heavy wind and rains a couple days ago. I’ve been here before though and it’s a nice trail. A little bit much for a beginner biker but if you’re determined, it’s fine.

Great mtn bike trail, challenging - gradual climbs, turns, drops, obstacles, and the trail is very well kept.

excellent trail! I forgot to hit record at the start of the hike, but the entire 7.8 miles is in perfect hiking condition. there are several cyclists, but if you hike counter clockwise like recommended in a separate comment below, it will make the hike much more enjoyable as you can see the cyclists coming. thank you for that recommendation!!

Definitely earns its rating as a moderate trail. Lots of steep hills. Highly recommend hikers take the trail counterclockwise, so that you can see the cyclists in time to get out of the way. Pretty busy today. Map is inaccurate as to the far NorthWest portion of the trail. The red trail does not exist. You have to follow the black one. Beautiful scent of honeysuckle in several areas.

Wonderful!! The trails are worn in and very well maintained. Great place for biking as well. Lots of ramps and jumps. We were there for hiking and it was absolutely gorgeous with all the wildflowers and honeysuckle in bloom. Go in the late evening or early morning to really smell them! Wow! It is everywhere. I read where the campsites open June 1st , due to Covid 19. Excited for that. We look forward to camping there.

Very friendly mountain bikers. Easy to walk and stay on trail. I only got turned around once but was able to use the map to get back on track. Would hike this again. Not that many people on the trail during COVID (no one wearing masks though).

Mountain Biking is well maintained! 3 different trails which are each based off of experience. Space for hikers to be in the side of the mountain bike trail.
