As others have said, needs some love. As do all of the trails in this area. The wall rides have no transition. There's so erosion. Could be so good!

Confirmed. Trail name needs an "n" added to the end. Emerges at top of steep embankment above new road and appears to end. Stopped looking for connector and turned back. Starting to look more like a game trail in places. Not recommended.

Although this trail is rated a green "beginner" trail, I would suggest this is more a blue "intermediate" trail with some pretty difficult sections. Great trail to build your skills on for sure!!!

Cool hilly XC type trail. Short climbs and descents for the length of the trails.

Construction still going on, several houses being built (literally) right on the trail. Avoid.

Loved it! Beginner trail with just enough surprises to keep me pumped! I'd say a more difficult beginner trail. Will do again.

You can tell this trail has not been maintained often enough in recent years. There is only one option down compared to what used to be many options. Some wooden features are gone as well, but the trail is still fun and fast

Trail is cut in half by Liberty construction project before a broken bridge. Can walk out of forest for about 200 ft to reconnect further ahead. Thumbs down
