Summary:
I think that this trail has some very serious potential, it just needs the political backing. I would really like to start a grass roots campaign to open this trail to Biking. I am sure us and the hikers could both use it fine. I think that this trail, and other small ones around it, are a ton of fun. It is good stress releif to get out of class and just blast on some fun and fast single track. Lets get thing going guys. Write back on this review page if you think you would like to help. Until then, keep spinin' and avoid the MAN!

Recommended Route:
From Eagle Hights back.

Reviewed by: Nate Dogg , from Madison

Summary:
This trail has too many hikers and not enough room to maneuver. The trail is also too flat and presents no challenge. In my honest opinion, it's not even worth pointing a knobby tire in the direction of Picnic Point . The entrance sign even recommends that riders walk their bicycles.

Recommended Route:
Not recommended

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Devils Lake
