Summary:
Real nice trail for me... I really like the terrain, singletrack semi-technical to technical I guess... It's hilly, kinda rocky, rooty, some drops if you want them. I think I'm an intermediate rider ( I've been riding bikes for 34 years and mountain biking off and on for 12 years but alot more in the last three years) It's almost always dry but it is getting really busy with both bikers and hikers. (I've been riding wrandees 3-4 years now )Depending on where you go, you might run into people with kids and or dogs so you have to be a bit careful... there are less busy spots further in though.

Recommended Route:
Any

Summary:
This is a good trail system that can challenge anyone on any given day. However, it's good policy to stay the hell of it on rainy days and even for a couple days after! I agree that the trails are seeing way more usage and do need some serious maintenance in some areas.

Recommended Route:
Any which way but loose! Keep that back tire rolling-trail erosion is nasty!

Summary:
THIS IS AN AWESOME, TECHNICAL TRAIL, WITH SOME SWEET TECHNICAL DROP MOFFS AND CLIMBS. I HAVE ONLY BEEN ON IT ONCE, AND OFTEN THINK ABOUT DRIVING THE 14 OR SO HOURS TO EXPERIENCE IT AGAIN. LIFE, AFTER ALL, IS TIME SPENT BETWEEN SINGLE TRACK RIDES!!!!!
