Has a lot of potential. Needs to be ridden more. A little loose. Good climbs with fast downhills. Very diverse trail.

Summary:
The whole trail system is fast and solid. Not techincal or steep but a great work out and alot of fun. It's like a "blue" ski run, you can make it challanging but at the end of the day its just a fun cruiser. This trail dries very quickly.

Recommended Route:
I prefer to park at the Piney Road trail head, ride the "bunny ears" first (Bashore -clockwise and Dutton Hollow-counter clockwise) then clockwise picking up War Eagle loop (the most difficult loop).

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Leatherwood - best
Slaughter Pen
Devils Den - really short

Summary:
I really loved this trail it is fast has some fun climbs and really gets your heart pumping. when ridden fast it really requires skill to make through the trees with out getting your shoulder knocked off. alot of fun though!

Recommended Route:
3 or more loops so it doesent matter I like doing the bunny ears in a figure 8 pattern and then go to the big loop. stop buy the visitors center to fill up the camelbak and do it all again!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Lake Leather wood.
Slaughter pen.
Devils den holt road loop.

Summary:
Hidden Diversity trail system is a great way to spend a couple of hours. It is non-techical other than a few switchbacks and a little heavy gravel in places from trail maintainence. All four loops are similar with War Eagle having a little more climbing. I got caught in the rain and the trails still rode well - the rocky terrain drains extremely well. For a strong cross-country rider, the system can be riden easily in two and half hours and is a great aerobic training ground. I've riden it once from the Piney Rd. lot - would recommend that starting point for more options and it's access from a paved road (Piney). Trails are very well maintained. Props to State Parks for creating solid, sanctioned MTB trails.

Summary:
This is an awesome trail. With the opening of the War Eagle Loop it is now about 23 miles total with about 3k ft of climbing per my GPS. Nothing very technical. We usually ride from the Piney Rd. trailhead so riders of different conditoning can do a shorter version of the trail. A little gravely but not bad. The new war eagle loop is a killer with 6 miles and lots of climbing. Up and down then repeat. Also killer climb coming out of Van Winkle hollow. Trail is very well maintained. Maps are availalbe at the ranger station but are a bit hard to interpret but trail is very well marked. We always ride the trail clockwise.

The Piney Rd. parking lot is new with nice restrooms. There is also an overflow lot across the street. We usually do the trail on the west side of the road first where there are two loops totaling about 8 miles. You can then do the 9 mile Van Winkle loop on the east side of the road after returning to the parking lot. The Van Winkle loop will end up back where you started. As added torture the new War Eagle loop exits the Van Winkle trail about mid way then returns to the Van Winkle trail after about 6 miles. Be careful to go left at the return intersection since the signs are a little ambiguous. That will take you back to the Piney road trail head.

Recommended Route:
Take highway 12 east out of Rogers towards War Eagle. Turn right on Piney Rd which is about 4.3 miles from the east side of the Beaver Lake bridge. Turn right into parking lot about 1/2 mile down on the right. The west side of the trail exits the parking lot on the west side by the Kiosk. The east side of the trail begins across the street on the east side of Piney Rd.
