Boyd Pond is a challenging ride. To get as much mileage as possible on a small piece of land the trail is very tight and twisty, with lots of switchbacks to fold the trail back onto itself almost. Plenty of steep short climbs immediately after those switchbacks. The trail is very sandy, and drains well after a rain.Show more
