Summary:
There are two major components to these trials. 1. Freeride 2. Singletrack trails.

1. Freeride

This is likely the only place in Wisconsin where you can legally get your freeride fix. There are two excellent decents from midway up the hill. On the left are two bridged drops that cut through the forest at high speed with a few little rollers for you to manual on or whip over. To the right there are two senders that need some work. Good amount of send and steep enough landing, but they need to be smoothed out and the landing should be cleaned up. However, there is an excellent fast berm section after the senders.

Also, if you follow the "blue" decent from the top of the ridge you can go into the "Tunnel trail." This is an excellent flowy decent. There are two poorly build tables at the beginning, but this is followed but the best purpose built wall ride in the midwest followed by more berms.

2. Singletrack trails

These trails defy the normal midwest convention of flat and straight and try to take advantage to the minimal elevation differences within the park by winding back and forth. More importantly, they berm corners.

Also once at the top of the ridge you can always go straight over the edge on the cliff trail. This leads down to a sandy/slick rock bowl. This riding is as close as your going to get to Fruita Co. in Wisconsin.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Cam Rock in Cambridge Wis. These trails receive the majority of work and support by the local bike club and certainly show it.

Summary:
Rode it once and loved it. I will be back. Not terribly technical, but definitely enough to keep you interested for a while. Some cool jumps and lots of roots and rock ledges. There are a bunch of different routes to take. Short downhill singletrack you can barrel down that is pretty fun.

Summary:
Relatively short at 1.7 miles for the combined intermediate/easy loop, but has some fun sections, a berm, two climbs and a couple log piles for some variety. A decent workout if you ride it 5 or 6 times. Watch out for slower riders on the easy section. Thanks, CORP, for putting this trail in.

Recommended Route:
Ride this when its dry, as the easy section and trail entrance on the far side can get muddy.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Blue Mound, CamRock and a zillion good road rides

Summary:
To be fair to CORP, I rode this new trail in the rain. This trail still needs work and needs to be ridden more. There is little flow and seems like it should be ridden backwards. I think I'll help CORP out next season.

Recommended Route:
Backwards
