Summary:
Perhaps this might enlighten a few of you cyclists out there. I can admittedly ride the white dot trail in less than an hour. Very peaceful place to visit.

My late aunt Florence E Lamson lived her life as a devout Christian. This Lamson farm was a DONATION to all of you who are being enriched by her generosity. I am saddened and sickened by new people coming to town and bragging about how the town of Mont Vernon acquired the farm. It was for a miserly amount of one hundred thousand dollars the value of a few acres back in 1978. This farm is over 332 acres. Let us get our facts straight. She lived her life for her Lord. This is why all of us are benefiting FROM HER UNSELFISH GENEROSITY. A DONATION .
Decent trails, beautiful scenery.

Her husband & my late Uncle William O. Lamson had died in mid 1976 in the arms of my father Roger Brown who was called from the barn while milking the cows..Roger held William in his arms as he lay dying on the kitchen floor
..
Let us get our facts straight.
You have this farm BECAUSE OF FLORENCE LAMSONS GENEROSITY!
I am currently writing a book of true stories about my family. A portion of it will be dedicated to my wonderful late Uncle William O. Lamson & his dear wife Florence E. Lamson.
Sincerely submitted,

By her niece,
SWB

Summary:
A pretty good mix of single track and old logging roads. There are a few somewhat technical sections, and one log ramp that you can bypass if you want. I liked the red rectangle to red diamond downhill the best, nice rhythm and a few fun challenges. I think the white dot would be fun to go down instead of up, too. The only drawback was that I was done in under 40 min. even with some repeat sections-I guess if you rode everything in both directions you could stretch it.

Recommended Route:
I went up the white dot to the end, turned left at the dirt road,left onto the yellow rectangle,right on white dot, right on blue diamond,right on red rctangle, across road to red diamond to the road. Then I went back up the white dot again to the second red/white intersection, continued up red to the blue intersection, turned around, went down all of red to the first red/white, back to start. 'pooter said 4.3 mi. total.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Patch Hill is my local quick ride. Townsend forest has some great trails with some nice technical sections after you find your way around. Both are reviewed here.
