Summary:
This really is a great trail. The singletrack is momentum-based. less shifting is better. There's enough of an elevation change, but if you ride the trail right there aren't any really difficult climbs. most climbs are short bursts that can be taken in the middle ring. If you ride all 14 miles of singletrack, it will leave you at least somewhat tired, depending on your fitness. The toughest parts are #2, 4, 10B, and 13; this is where the half-dozen or so rock gardens are located. the toughest switchback descent in on 2, the toughest climb (aerobic) is on 3. these parts are four chilis. the rest are 2-3 chilis.

Recommended Route:
follow the numbers 1-14, although i like to throw in loops of ski trail, since riding the same singletrack weekly can get a little monotonous.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Nine Mile, the Island.

Summary:
11 miles of point-to-point, one-way, fun, rooty, rocky, tight, singletrack. Well maintained. Easy to follow. A really fun ride. Not much climbing but some rolling hills exist.

Summary:
Like stated below, it is fun, rooty, twisty singletrack. The trail is no longer the doubeltrack as in the past. I singlespeeded it on a 29er once last summer and had a blast. I plan to ride a few times next year. Althought no tough climbs, there is always soemthing interesting, whether it be a few rocks to handle, root to hop, or soem off camber turns. Good for a few hours of riding and a change of pace from other trails. Only saw two other riders, so far from busy.

Recommended Route:
Follow the number up from 1.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Nine mile, Levi-Trow Mounds

Summary:
Rode this for the first time today. Great singletrack, well maintained and easy to follow. Lots of roots and rocks throughout. Some tricky sections, but not an overly difficult trail. No steep, tough hills, but the trail rarely stays flat for more than a couple hundred feet.
Probably my new favorite trail in the area.

Recommended Route:
Follow the numbers, 1-14.

Summary:
14 miles of single track. Watch out for rocks, roots, tight turns and deer. I don't have much to say beyond what has been said below. Go out there and ride. You will not be dissappointed. I think these trails would have a much higher overall rating if you took out all of the old reviews from when it was just double track ski trails.

Recommended Route:
Start at trail 1 and go in order through 14. If you want zip back up the ski trails when you're done and ride some of the more challenging--I think 4, 6 and 10B are numbers, but you'll figure it out when you're there.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
9 mile
