Summary:
I have not done all the trails but i love the climbing. The only part that i do not like about the trails is that there are roots right where you need speed, but I guess that it adds to the challenge of these awesome trails. I cannot wait to ride there more.

Summary:
I was in the Youngstown area on a business trip, and pleasantly surprised to see these trails only a half hour away. Was hesitant at first because there had been heavy rains earlier in the day, but the trail had only intermittent muddy spots and was slick and slippery than muddy. I ended up doing the entire outer singletrack loop in a counterclockwise direction which I later found out was not the recommended way. Still had a great time. Lots of rock gardens, wooden bridges, log piles, roots, and tight twisty singletrack. Enough elevation to keep you honest, but mostly just a gentle rollercoaster that dips and drips around a series of ravines.

Recommended Route:
I did the loop counterclockwise and it was fun. I imagine going clockwise would be fun too.

Summary:
Ridden Once, going back for more. I rode the whole thing on one day. Awesome. The easy route was fun elevation with some technical stuff. Darn log piles always on the uphill. The harder track is more technical, but still just as fun.

WARNING: there is a part that is for expert, and it is for expert. I am in my first season, and I took it, I walked most of it and flipped over the handle bars when I was trying to ride it. Its a lot of rocks, actually the whole thing is rocks.

Recommended Route:
Do it all. Took me and a group of four other guys about 4 hours, with some breaks and a lunch break inbetween the two loops.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Medina's Reagen Park, its not in the area but its good enough to mention.

Summary:
The trail is divided into two categories by Cable Line Rd. The side closest to the lake (north side of the road) is a great warm up trail despite it being 8 miles long. I would rate the north side of the road as a beginner to intermediate level and is basically XC, this side of the road is fast and flowing, it has several log obstacles, bridges, roots, and a few oppurtunities for air, but watch out for other riders because this can be riden from either direction. I highly recommend that if you don't warm up on this trail, you should use it as a cool down ride, the scenery is great, and the ride is very enjoyable.
The south side of clable line road is completely different from the north side, although the scenery isnt as enjoyable, it is a much tougher ride and i would only suggest it to an experianced rider or someone who is used to riding "all mountain" On this side on the street there are indtermediate, andvanced, and "expert" trails. On these trails you will experiance Many log obstacles, and i swear that every 300 feet there is a huge rock garden. the advanced trails will seem quite doable to a experianced rider, but by no standards is it a walk in the park, these trails will give you one heck of a workout... If you are feeling ballzee try the "Expert" trail (80 percent of it is a rock garden), I really dont think it is of "expert" standards, but it is really quite difficult and ide say about 3 percent is "literally impossible to ride", but thats how it is with two way trails there will always be a hill that you can only go down, and not up. I suggest at least trying it, you will have the time of your life!

Recommended Route:
Get to Cable Line road, park in the mtb parking lot, hop on the trail, ask other riders what they suggest to do (there's usually at least someone else there, most of which are friendly), and ride your heart out.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Reagan Park, Vultures knob, Mohican
