No. of Reviews: 7

Nice easy trails near the entrance, but gets harder quickly. Watch out for private property, as some land owners may have created trails linking unto the public trails. Nice single track and fireroads. Trails unmarked near the entrance, but in the back they are labeled blue and white. Easy to get lost, ride with care.

Summary:
I can't undersand the whining. Other than the lack of technical riding,this place isn't bad. Combo of singletrack and fire road, good 5 mile-plus loops. Maybe more aerobic-type single track, but some drop-offs. Good for an evening- hardly see other bikes- maybe a couple of Fishermen in the front area.

Recommended Route:
3/4 mile downhill along lower side of area (heading south.)

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Trumbull

Summary:
START AT THE END OF THE LOWER PARKING LOT AND FOLLOW THE UTILITY TRAIL UNTIL THE END WHERE IT BREAKS LEFT INTO THE WOODS. CROSS THE LOGS AND RIDE THE SINGLE TRACK, STAY LEFT AT THE FIRST FORK AND IT WILL CIRCLE AROUND BACK TO THE TO THAT INTERSECTION. RIDE DURING THE DAY IF NOT FAMILIAR WITH THE AREA. (WATCH FOR HUNTERS DURING HUNTING SEASON)

Recommended Route:
BUY A QUALITY SET OF LIGHTS AND RIDE AT NIGHT

Summary:
Try to avoid this place because it is real bad. Do not bike here because it is always wet and you are guaranteed to get lost, plus it is illegal to truspass on this property. Also do not go to huntington down the road because i like to go there and it is always too crowded.

Recommended Route:
straight under the poles.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Your back yard...or route 302 or 25
