Typical Eastern conditions according to weather, well maintained and rideable for beginners, but plenty of technical stuff too. Steep climbs, excellent downhills.

Summary:
One of the best places i've found to ride in the area. Lots of stuff there. Decently wet but there are bridges over most of the stuff. You can ride a while without hitting the same trail twice, but there is always an easy way back to the truck if you need it.

Theres a really fun drop off on the GIN trail near post 69, Puts a big grin on my face every time i ride it. I need to ride the west side more often

Recommended Route:
fox easy, ginn, regan, lanzo then play on island or fox west if i have time

Other recommended trails in the same area:
libby hill

Some of the best trails in the region. Avoid the "O" trail unless you like to suffer(real slow,no flow,lots of rocks & roots).Trails are well marked(maps @ tollbooth).

Recommended Route:
Lanzo,Island(off Lanzo),Ragan,Fox East/West all good.

Other recommended trails in the same area:

Summary:
Great trails, mostly singletrack. A good deal of grinding, to be expected in the region. The climbs are not crazy but will make you work, and the downhills are good fun. The trails were wet and muddy -- I rode here in late June -- which made the rocks and roots more of a challenge. I recall two stunt bridges (of which I took only one) along the way. Beautiful scenery, of course.

If you're from out of town, like me, stay at Bradbury -- great campground.

Recommended Route:
I covered more or less everything on the east side but the "O" trail. It's quite easy to navigate using the numbers on the signposts, corresponding to a map available at the park entrance on the west side.

Summary:
Literally has something for every level of riders. I venture here about twice a year. The scenery is nice and the trails are a good time. I've ridden once with a hardtail and once with an all mountain bike. I've been riding seriously for 9 years and there are trails at bradbury that I can't climb and drops that I don't have the balls to do.

For some reason I've yet to hit these trails on a dry day. Yet its always worthwhile even during the down pours.

Recommended Route:
If you're an experienced rider, start off with the "O" trail. Ride it all the way through or at least until you get lost (it's wicked easy to navigate back to the main trails) and then head back across the road to climb the mountain. I took the switchback trail last time to head up the mountain and then took the boundary trail back down. It was superb.
