Summary:
Fun for families or for a true beginner. The trails are almost perfectly flat, kept very clean, and its almost like riding through a park. There are multiple different trails, I rode them all in less than 3 hours, only maybe a mile at most with roots, no technicals, and like I said before its like riding in a park. This would be nice for a family trip with younger kids, but if you have a boy or girl around 10 looking for excitement this wouldn't cut it. For me, it just turned out to be a day to get some excersize, and I caught a eastern king snake and saw a black snake but couldn't catch him he was to skiddish and quick. The snake catching was the only actually fun part of the day, the rest was just excersize. I gave it 2 chili's just because it's a neatly kept place and can give you at least a 2 chili work out if you push it, but this isn't really what I would call a "mountain" biking trail.

Recommended Route:
Wherever, if you go I would just try to ride them all at a quick pace, maybe enjoy the scenery a bit, and look for snakes to mess around with as long as they aren't poisonous!

New Quarter, Freedom, Lake Maury, Harwood Mills.

Summary:
I had a good time on this trail today. It was flat but I got a good workout. The trail is well marked. There was a few hikers along the way. I had a good time. I ride to burn calories so this trail was good for that. The trail didn't have any hazards that could get you hurt if you made a mistake.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Nike Park in Carrolton
