Very nice set of trails, the first time I really needed to wear hiking boots this trip. With a little shortage of time I was able to get 4.29 miles in. Lots of options.

Did some snowshoeing this past winter was beautiful and the chickadees land on your hands if you feed them

Great trail for winter hike. Tied this trail together with a trail system not shown on AllTrails for a 10 mile hike. Trails are groomed for X-Country skiing but you can go off trail as well. Good elevation changes to make it a true moderate trail system. Trail head is easy to find and there are trail maps at every sub-trail intersection.

Bring some birdseed if you're skiing in during the winter. The chickadees and squirrels will love you for it. There's a nice little hut where you can build a fire and make a day of it. I've biked this a few times in the summer (on a 650b) and it's exceptionally bumpy and rooted. I'm looking forward to trying it out this summer on a fat bike, which might make it a bit easier.

Found it good for mountain biking with levels from easy to very difficult. Trails were marked and fairly well maintained. I was very surprised no one was biking it.
