Summary:
i am pretty please with this trail. as far as living in dupage, this is the best i have found. you get to it right off of butterfield road across from home depot. it isnt maintained very well because it is illegal. its fun. pretty small but good enough for me to get my fix. some rolling hills and dives once you get about 3/4 mile into it. lets just get some more bikers in there and fix this place up and it could be a top trail. especially for the location. lots of potential for good lines

Whats the deal on this trail? Is it singletrack? Does anyone work on it anymore? I'm local and I wouldn't mind helping out to get another great mtb destination going.

Summary:
Fun ride in my backyard. It seems more people are riding here as the trails are not getting overgrown. I've noticed a new log bridge and a log ramp over a creek bed. Its all good. Someone is doing some work. I also noticed that a lot of the larger logs across the trail have been cut and removed. Who? & Why? I'm not an trail building guru but why remove challenging obstacles?

Recommended Route:
Park in Hidden Lake lot...ride over bridge then a hard left , head east up into trails.
