Question: What is worse than "meh"?
Answer: this "trail", well it's not a trail actually, it's another forest service road.

As NERider said it does connect some fun trails with some other fun trails, but I recommend you find another connection.

Wet! Very wet and several flowing stream crossings, muddy in a lot of spots.

The one trail I wouldn't leave the park without riding. Slight rooted climb at the beginning, but worth it.

This is a super smooth trail with a small drop to bypass a small rock garden and also a little rock jump. Its one of my favorites so far and a very enjoyable ride for all skill levels.

I rode it Northeast to Southwest and it wasn’t memorable. Not terrible but definitely not something you should seek to do unless it’s to connect you from one better Trail to the other like from Hemloc to the Bear Hill / hedgehog ledge group of trails

Great trail for what it is fast flow he single track. Lots of twists and turns easy to carry speed in tight turns. Lots of little rock features and drops we can get air or skip them if you want to. I had fun doing it alone and I had more fun doing it with my 10-year-old son definitely a great way to get from Bear Hill up to the little bear big bear combo

Didn’t love this trail and it becomes an archery course about a third of the way in. I was rolling down a trail and rolled out and almost in between a notched compound bow and it’s target

From Podunk Rd. to Spruce Pond Rd, this is an underated fun little downhill blast. After that it flattens a bit and gets a little boring. If ridden right its a fun beginner to intermediate fairly wide trail.
