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.
