Summary:
There are a couple technical things here. Every now and then we build some log jumps there , but they seem to get taken down. Some nice wooden bridges to cross, lots of roots if you find the right routes. Definately not the toughest trail, but something close to home for me.

Recommended Route:
The boathouse side to the beginning of the fireroad.. then U turn back to the singletrack again.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
None in the area.. St marys lake sucks. Go all the way up to Schaeffer farms.

Summary:
This trail stinks, anyone looking for a fast fun trail look somewhere else. This is a family trail, something you would use if you are teaching you kids to ride.

Recommended Route:
Into the water

Summary:
Park anywhere and find the boathouse. The trail starts by the lake, going into the woods. It's a loop with singletrack and dirt road. Pretty cool.

Recommended Route:
Around the lake.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Calvert Cliffs State Park
