There are ATV trails and hiker/biker trails. The trail starts up the steep incline on the S side of the parking lot. It follows single track thru the woods, criss-crossing ATV trails and eventually ends on a fire road which for 1 mi. leads back to parking lot.

Summary:
I really enjoy this trail, It is a good loop that both makes me work, and practice some technical decents. It is about an 8 miles loop that can be lengthened by connecting to Gales Creek Trail. I like to get the big bad climb out of the way first and ride the loop clockwise, although a friend disagrees and thinks that counterclockwise is more fun.

Summary:
I really love this trail system. Every time I have gone it has been empty. I think all the ATV's tend to scare people off. The singletrack is steep in certain places and on a wet day the roots can be a little slick. This is a fun loop although I usually end up getting lost somehow which is fine because 7.5 miles isnt enough anyway. Make sure you're careful when crossing the fireroads. I have almost been taken out by a dirt bike more than once on the fire roads.

Recommended Route:
Follow the signs for the University Falls Trail

Summary:
Steep beginning up hill but eventually mellows. There is a river crossing but you can traverse over downed trees. A fun trail.
