Summary:
Awesome facility! Great Trails! BUT i just dont understand the Whinners about the ticket price ,they can spend thousands on a scoot but cant shell out a few $$ to spend a day at a beautiful trail network ? I just dont get it.

Recommended Route:
Any and all, just explore all the trails, it has something for everyone . As for ratings Aerobic is as hard as you make it , as a older rider i hike & bike the real technical stuff ,but thats on the uphills and im a good rider ,i can shred down the trails ,as for technical i chose 3 because i think they have it all ,easy to hard, as for overall rating its the best so i give it a top rating .

Summary:
Lots of new trails and re-routes this year with the addition of a new trail - Crank'd. This place is loaded with excellent singletrack, perfect for any rider looking for a singletrack fix. Everything flows well and is laid out nice, there is some climbing that will challenge your legs but its all rideable. This would be a 5 star rating but the cost of a trail pass ($12.50 per day as of 2009) is pretty steep, especially when there are other places close by with the same quality of trails at a cheaper cost.

Recommended Route:
Serious, Crank'd, Fun, Sidewinder, Gnarly..... then if you've got it in you try the torture-fest of Radical.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Albion hills
Buckwallow

Summary:
An extensive set of trails.
I rode on Serious and Fun (OK, I was with my wife). I even saw tourists snapping up pictures with the family, a bunch of kids on a lession. But there was also an XC race going on at the same time?! A bit too much lycra for me. Thats the kind of place it is.

I'm a bit surprised that it got such a low score, but I'd have to admit that this place is primarily for XC. I think any free-rider/DH rider would find this place an absolute snooze. On the other hand its a great place for a work-out.

As for value for the money, I found it steep, but again its the facilities and XC-skiing is even more (so quit the complaining?).
If you're looking for big time fun head to Buckwallow or Porcupine ridge. Much more chance for hurting yourself and soiling your pants.

Summary:
highly overrated!!!! Only ride this place if you LOVE SAND!!!! It's sand everywhere! I rode Serious and Gnarly. The trail layout was good, but every corner has huge amounts of SAND at the apex. Every downhill has SAND at the bottom, and when it's not sand it's HAY!! that's right Hay is everywhere. Riding on hay is like trying to ride on ice. Hay hides all the ruts and holes in the trail.

Worse than that, most of the downhill root stairs are also SAND!!! try cleaning a long steep set of roots when it's sand everywhere. No traction anywhere on those things!

On the other hand, the facilities are great, They even have showers!! Good thing too, you'll get sooo much sand in you that it's a must!!!

Recommended Route:
Actually Sprockids is a good warm-up route with very little SAND or HAY on the trail. It's quick, but make sure you have narrow bars or you will get stuck, some of the openings are narrow.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Durham Forest, there is far less sand and the trails are cleaner
