Most of the trails are well groomed mostly due to animal traffic. There are several small climbs with a couple of log bridges a few roots and lots of tight turns. Much more technical stuff than Miller Hill near the main gate.

Take a left onto the unnamed street and you should now see the trailhead at the opening in the chain-link fence. The entrance veers right for 200 feet or so, then links in with a dirt road. Take a left on the dirt road and continue up the hill where it flattens out and then descends again. Continue straight down the road passing the first intersecting and climb up the next hill. As you near the top of the second hill you will come to another intersection and two orange underground cable markers directly in front of you.

Summary:
Not a very big trail system. I rode the whole thing(I think)like three times, and only got around six miles. Good technical stuff though. It just needs to get bigger. The trails wind and crisscross each other in a ridiculous manner, but it is still fun. I would'nt go out of my way to ride it. I just throw in some fire roads at top speed to get some distance on my legs. I like Miller Hill much better.

Recommended Route:
Get there by using the directions to the trailhead from the other guys. The trailhead is right next to a covered building with big bucket loaders, I would have never found it, had my girlfriend not known where it was. Back by the RV, and boat storage area. However, once you get to the orange markers, to find the trail is hard. I looked for a couple of hours before finding them. Follow the main trail, and all I can say is take the grassy left maybe a quarter mile past the orange markers. You will see the trail start to take shape, and it will then become clear!
