Unsustainable trail and maintenance. The state and et al do little to no work on these trails aside maybe trimming.

I've been riding this trail a bit over the last few weeks. My Garmin Edge records the length at 5.4 miles long. Does anyone know why the above stats put it at 4.25? I can't imagine that the Garmin is off by that much.

This is a very well maintained trail with some cool features and fun riding. It's relatively flat but definitely worth riding if in the area.

I love all of the new features on this trail! It's really got a mix of everything now from techy roots to flowy jump lines and drops. A must do in Tally!

Typical power line track, good connector between Timberlane Rd and MacClay Gardens. Higher Grounds bike show near trail head.

No issues. Conditions excellent. This is a dirt road under the powerline and it's fine. South end has adjacent construction-still passable.
