Summary:
The trails in this area are incredible but there aren't very many ways to get into them. There are trails for all skill levels. Beginners will enjoy the Forest Roads (such as FR379 and FR379A), intermediates will love singletracks like the "Ultimate Singletrack" and the "Electric Loop" and those more advanced can head up to the challenging terrain around Stony Brook and the Mineral Site trails. We have a chalet and made our own trail from our backyard that joins up with trails in the network. We can't get enough of these trails!!! Our dogs love them too. If you ever need a dog-friendly and non-smoking place to stay and ride... check out our listing on www.HOMEAWAY.com -- "Red RIdge Chalet"

Recommended Route:
I like the "Ultimate Singletrack" but my husband loves "Electric Loop".

Summary:
Only rode it once but it won't be my last time. Good stuff there and lots of it. I was the only one in my group to try wimpy glutch, I almost made it but failed. Sherwood Forest was a blast. Drop a lot of elevation fast and lots of switch backs put a smile on my face. Rode electric loop which was awesome. Very fast smooth, and relatively flat. I wouldn't classify it as really challenging, but a lot of fun.

I parked at the mineral site parking, did my routes, then biked up the fire roads to the truck. Climbing gradual hills on fire roads isn't really my cup of tea, next time i'll climb back up in the woods.

Summary:
An excellent trail with a nice, short hill climb in the beginning. The hill climb is a pretty easy ride up, last time I did it all on my middle ring. When you reach the mineral trail, start riding the NEMBA trail. The beginning part is mostly flat with lots of roots and technical stuff, and of course, Wimpy Gulch(a technical gully that is really hard to in and out of without falling or having to walk.) Eventually you will reach the downhill section of it, Sherwood Forest. This is a fun, mostly easy downhill that has many smooth parts that you can go fast on, but also a few difficult rock gardens. Once you reach the bottom there are many other trail loops that you can take before leaving.

Recommended Route:
Park at the pool in Cedar Creek(You are technically not supposed to park there but I've never had any trouble with that.) Ride down to the entrance where there is a short single-track that leads to a dirt road with a fork. Take the way to the left(with the gate.) Keep going through the four inch deep puddle(you may want to leave an extra pair of socks in the car) and beyond until you reach another road that this road branches into. Turn right as apposed to going straight. Keep going that way until you reach another choice, right or straight. Go right keep going until you reach a dead end where the entrance of the trail is.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
The Red Tail Trail, Stick & Stones, Great Glen Trails.

Summary:
As noted in the first review below, this description only scratches the amount of trail here. Very few times have I run out of umph in a day before I ran out of new trail to ride. Park at the Mineral Trail (Can be seen on maps from bike shops) and ride the NEMBA trail down. From the bottom, explore left or right on that fire road, using your keenly trained NE Mtb eyes of course, and you will find miles of singletrack, which is some of the best I have ridden. Finding it is half the fun, but your half way there now!

Recommended Route:
Mineral Trail (NEMBA Trail) to fire road, then loop off the fire road in any direction pleased.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Black Cap Connector, Sticks n Stones....
