OK, I have a different take on this trail. I am 65 yo and rode it mid October, 2022. I am not used to riding on such rocky terrain, and some of the rocky and roots quick ups I took were too much for me. Couple of really long climbs also kicked my tushy. I don't agree that this trail was built for mtn biking. I believe it to be a hiking trail that was opened up to bikers. Not dissing it! If you enjoy really rocky terrain, like a few long steep climbs, don't get freaked out by riding along some steep fall-offs on the lake side, then come on and ride this one. It shook my confidence in my abilities, but I'm an old guy, so take that into account. Nice scenery and no one else was there when I rode it!

Not as much fun as the Berryman. This trail is flatter in comparison. Great views of the lake and a fun place to swim after your ride if you park at the beach!

There was a controlled burn in the area which led to a few fallen/burnt trees on the path. Otherwise, near perfect conditions.
