Okay, the hills are pretty crazy. Great downhills followed by insane climbs. Remember your power gel, you may need it. This trail is shared with horses so watch out! There are different distances denoted by colors marked on trees

Summary:
I would guess that this trail has seen quite a bit of improvement since the last review. The trails are an absolute blast and in great condition. If you are in the area I'd recommend checking them out.

Summary:
The trail offers everything. Only experienced riders should attempt this trail unless you plan on pushing your bike uphill. NO KIDS! There are extreme downhill runs followed immediately by an uphill that his just as steep as the one you just came down. Long trail that will test your uphill ability. Experienced rider - Try it on a rainy day!

Recommended Route:
Follow the signs and stay on the trail. If you get to the end and you don't want to come back on the trail; hit the road and you'll make it back to your vehicle.

Summary:
This could be a very good trail but it looks like a lot of work needs done on it. On a few of the climbs there are huge rain ruts making a climb or descent impossible. Many of the jumps that they had there need restructured as the soil has worn away from logs leaving just another obstacle.

Recommended Route:
There are two loops as you get to the parking area, one directly to your right and one to your left. The one on your left has some huge rain ruts in it that only a horse or a atv could get up it.The one on your right has a killer climb, which once made is rewarding but i wish there were more places to get some air. This trail connects with the Shawnee trail and goes the whole way to the north of the park to provide a thorough work out.

Summary:
This is the best place to ride. I helped build one of the trails out there and plan on doing many more with the GSV group. I ride here at least 3 days a week and it never gets old. It just doesn't get any better than this. Good steep climbs, fast downhills, steep dips that rocket you back up, very good flow over all the trails. Some sections are very technical. This is a multi use trail so remember to watch out and be kind to the hikers, bikers and horsemen.

Recommended Route:
All the trails are so fun there's no certain place to start. Just park on Rocky Knob and hit the trails.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
NONE!
