Summary:
It was convenient to the interstate. The single track we found was very overgrown. We ended up getting off it and onto the wider path which I think is a horse/snowmobile trail. Again it was ok but not the greatest.

Summary:
This has been a decent trail for years now, and is getting better fast. A new volunteer group is maintaining the trails, building new trails and obstacles and it is already ready to ride for 2010, even after the huge snowstorms. Look for north shore inspired stunts with bypasses as soon as May 2010. As well as new maintenance personel for the upcoming Ohio Valley Mountain Bike Association.

Summary:
I noticed this trail hadn't been reviewed for some time, so I thought I better chime in. I will say that I've only ridden it once, and I broke my derailleur half way, so I didn't get to see it all. However, what I did get to see was a trail that is suffering from lack of use and lack of maintenance. Although the trail was marked pretty well, it was easy to get lost where people started their own trails to get around sections with downed trees, etc. Where the trails weren't needing maintenance, they were in pretty good shape. I think with some work, and some better trail marking in some of the newer sections, this trail has a lot of potential. Although, it will never be a real long trail, it makes good use of the area available. Not sure what group is in charge of maintenance, but that's all it really needs so that we can add another decent trail in Southeastern Ohio. As it stands now though, I would attempt it only if you are in the area.

Recommended Route:
There isn't a lot of miles here, so just pick a trail and go.

Summary:
I would give this place a ride only if you were in the area. It seems they only had a small area to work with and they did an ok job designing the small trail system. The trails for MTB's are not marked very well, and the newer sections of the trail are designed better and are going to be around awhile. The older sections are poorly designed and built, they will wash out or become mud pits soon. It is a pretty easy trail but has some really fast sections. If the builders of this trail system would utilize trail better another 4 miles could be had easily.
If you were on your way to PA or Micky's MTN or Parkersburg it might be worth your stop here for a pretty fun three miles or 4. The park is georgous and really clean...great lake vistas on the way to the trail head...

Recommended Route:
follow the tree markers.
