Summary:
The trail is very flat, but quite technical. It can be boring if you're just out for a cruise, but it can be much harder if you really try to push yourself. That's the great thing about this trail, no matter what kind of speed you're up for, you can run it here.

The fastest I have gone around is 29:45, and I know I definitely could go faster than that. Once you get up to that kind of speed, you're regularly barely dodging trees and really working your technical skills. That's when the trail gets to be a lot of fun!

The second loop on this trail is definitely one of my favorite sections of trail that I have ridden. It has a great flow to it, a great mix of speed and technical difficulty.

Recommended Route:
Start with the shorter northern loop, then the two to the south of the main road. and if you're like me, ride that second loop a couple more times.

Summary:
Trail in great condition. This trail is best done at moderate speed without armor. Very easy to contact small trees. Very flat, I come in from the River boat launch as I park there, I get some warm-up and hills on the way in. Plus the young women sunbathing by the gravel pit is a plus. I have read some of the posts doing this in 20 minutes thats hard to believe, would like to see it.

Summary:
The trail is awesome, it dosnt have alot of hills and is mostly flat, but it is very technical. Very narrow paths, have to worry about smashing fingers! Alot of fun and scenery is beautiful.

Recommended Route:
No real routes, just make sure you are looking out for other bikers, no real place to pass each other.

Cannonsburg, Hofma park (easy trail), Pigeon Creek...

Summary:
A good local trail. Nothing extremly hard but can be as challenging as you make it. The first loop is fast with vary fluid corners and the second is extremely tight. Fun to race your friends and your best time.

Recommended Route:
Both loops at least once.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Robinettes, Egypt Valley, Yankee Springs

Summary:
Very fun. Lots of techincal turns, and narrow trails. The scenery is pretty cool too. Wish it was longer though, you can whip through it pretty quick, even your first time.
