The big dock that's in a picture here does not exist, unless I missed a wormhole. Lots of deer. Nice and quiet (still hear interstate). Convenient

The bridge that was destroyed during the flooding in 2015 has been replaced. Nice easy hike.

A great place to ride...when you come out of the woods, turn around and go the opposite way, its a whole different trail! Great workout on your mountain bike, and there is another trail on the bluff that runs along two knotch road. The bigger the tires the better as there is a lot of sand that is deep in some places. Add the 3 mile double track as a warm up and cool down and you can easily ride 12 plus miles. When you cant ride at Harbison due to rain...go check out Sesqui!

the trail has been redone and it makes it very friendly for families and dogs. Great stroll around the lake.

It's jsut as fun to walk this trail as it is to ride it.

Lots of wildlife around this trail

The MTB trail at Sesqui is a Jeckyl and Hyde monster. Go out slow, maybe for fun or with the family, and it will probably seem pretty basic. Most of the trail is fairly wide, it is well marked, and the greatest technical features will be rooty/waterstepped climbs or rooty short descents with the greatest drop/ledge being about a 29" wheel height. The surface is sand so it's a fantastic place to ride when the other local trails are too wet. It drains quickly and really firms up when wet. If it's been dry then expect many areas of deep loose sand. This is where I believe the Hyde monster comes in. The trails technicality comes from the sand and going out fast. IMO if Sesqui doesn't seem exciting enough then you need to go faster. This is an excellent trail to test cornering ability and holding speed on an unsure surface. Practice, practice and it will get faster and faster. Lose your focus on cornering and it will let you know quick with a washout.

Nice singletrack trail, light (if any) traffic, some sandy parts but easily manageable. Good, moderate, multi-style course. Perfect for speed, and technical work at low risk.

Great trail near my home. Sandy, mostly double track, moderate dog/walking traffic. Good speed trail.

Extremely short run but if you keep going along the road there are some mean hills. Don't underestimate the heat and humidity during the summer. I made that mistake yesterday...

great trail, but there was a detour. The original trail does not have any markings and that could be confusing.

Nice paved, safe, and almost a 4 mile jog but can get boring. No pets allowed and no bikes.

Nice trail for beginners. Straight shot. Not great for bikers. A lot of road noise. Pretty scenery!!! Will definitely do it again.

Pros: Lake and city skyline views. Stunning sunsets.
Cons: Heavy loud highway noise on full route. Possible risk of being hit by road debris. No shade or benches. Limited parking.

Was a nice walk on a beautiful day. Flat terrain, lots of dogs and joggers. A good route to get out and get some fresh air.

Flat but pretty walk. All concrete footpath. Enjoyed sunrise but would imagine sunset is better.
