High Point

Muddy/snowy at the summit with some soft spots occasionally. All can be avoided still and with the fall weather, It was surprisingly dry. I took a wrong turn and did cobblestone loop by accident and turned onto Stealth also by accident. My app shut down and I got lost. Navigation is not my forte on the trail. I wish it were easier to understand the directions.. Not all trail forks indicated direction well.

So darn rocky. skip It unless you like rocks.
Switch back...rocky short bit... Switch back...repeat. cant geta nice flow going.
Even the flats were rocky.
I was tired so probably in a worst mood than if I were fresh.

This is a fun trail! It’s very rocky, and you seem to really underestimate the rocks, they definitely give it some added difficulty. But the view is amazing with the rolling green hills, and it’s a good starter trail. I’m an intermediate rider, and I felt like it was a really great start.

When there are puddles on the trail,
Don’t ride through them,
Please ride around them.
Thanks

With 91% riding this CCW why does the map show it as being ridden in a CW direction?
I have ridden it 67 times in the CCW direction. You could say it's one of my favorites.

What a great trail. The people riding it against the grain, not so much. This trail is the only place someone has snarled at me while I am standing over my bike yielding right of way as they climb past me.

really hard to beat for the area. One of the best. I always see a ton of wild life too. Just be a bit careful with your speed when you do not have a good line of sight. There are a lot of people that run or bike up it too. I usually make is a loop but to each their own
