Summary:
This trail is a great trail for the area if your a local. Not recommended for someone who would have to travel to the area. Get to know these trails they can take you from one side of Cumberland to the other, and if you play it right its mostly downhill.

Recommended Route:
The best way to start this trail is off of West Wrentham road in Cumberland (maybe after a stop at Everybuddies). You can park on the road near a white gate barrier and cycle around it. You shortly go into the woods and begin blasting through the begginning downhill section. This area can be very muddy after a big rain or early in the season, and the dirtbikers can really make some big ruts in the middle of some of these puddles (swamps? ha) so try and keep your speed and balance through this section. Later in the year, you can fly through this area. You are then offered a wide variety of choices on which way to go. One way you end up on a field then cut back in for a nice little uphill section. Theres another area with an even better technical climb, almost everywhere you go there are branches in the path but eventually they all lead to the bottom which is a rocky downhill section which if your not careful you can eat it pretty good, but its pretty tame and you can carry alot of speed through the end. Afterward attack diamond hill and go over the backside and speed through the reservoir for a good afternoon ride.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Diamond hill trails are quite short, but can be connected to the reservoir trails to turn a short ride into something a bit lenghtier.
