Summary:
this trail is relatively easy. however, riding at race pace greatly changes the ride. there are both open fire roads as well as tight single track. this trail is pretty flat but a good workout as there are no breaks from pedaling. really good 10 miles of riding that is well marked. locomtb.com for races and rides here.

Summary:
I've ridden parts of this trail many times, and I love it. From one direction it is well marked, but not from the other. But, for the most part it's easy to follow. The trail is packed into a relatively small area, so it frequently loops back itself. It doesn't get much use, so it's in fairly good condition. No major hills, but it's narrow with lots of very tight turns. Beautiful forest, lot's of big old pines and hardwoods. If you have time, spend the night in the campground or a cabin and go for a canoe ride, the lake is amazing.

Summary:
A friend and I rode this trail after reading some of the reviews and talking to some locals. We were very disappointed! The trails are not well maintained and are not cleary marked in some locations. The "advanced" trail was a joke - nothing advanced at all. It had rained 3 days earlier and the trail was still very muddy! This will not be a trail I will ride again!

Summary:
I rode this trail last year and really had a good time. It was hot and humid though so that always trashes any ride for me...I will be riding it again this November and looking forward to it and cooler conditions this time. I'll report
what I find...Peace

Summary:
I just rode this trail for the first time...my first trail ride, too. I thoroughly enjoyed this trail. The trail is well marked and in overall good condition. After about 6 miles or so there is a fork. A sign indicates beginners to the right, advanced to the left. I took the advanced. The trail was not too difficult...just some small logs placed in various places on the trail. There were a couple of places I had to dismount due to lack of confidence in my skills. Overall, it was a good ride. I would recommend this trail for anyone wanting to start trail riding and for those who want to work on speed and tight turn skills. Kudos to the people who maintain the trail.
