Love this trail, but it’s very overgrown right now. Almost unrideable.

Easy trail up. Very little tree cover for most of the trail, be careful if it’s hot out.

Fun trail, very overgrown, watch out for the fork in the road, there is an alternate trail that doesn’t show up on trailforks.

This trail has some seriously fun fast sections, even with a bit of loam thrown in!

Not sure what the dude above is talking about, it’s still flown and fast. All of the root sections on the descent are super fun and don’t slow you down at all. I guess if you’re looking for more garbage super smooth machine built trail then you’re let down but this trail is super fun singletrack!

This is an under-rated trail! Going down it is fun! A little overgrown but not too bad.

This used to be one of my favorite trails and I rode it often over the last decade when I lived close by. This was my 1st visit in about 5 years. I went up and did the same loop of the Ridge trail to here and was really sad to see how much motor cycles have ripped up this section. It used to be quite flowy and smooth but now is still ride able but lots of ruts, big exposed root and silty, sandy sections. Won't be coming back here for a while

One of the most fun trails in the area. Mostly smooth, fast, not too technical.
