 This trail network has a lot of potential, however, it is currently not a lot of fun to ride. Unless you are a local, it is impossible to tell where you are without constantly stopping to look at your phone/map. There are no trail markings other than completely ambiguous color-codings on trees here and there. Plan lots of extra time for stopping to orient yourself and the very slow nature of these trails. Lost of very slow, muddy, and rocky sections - you will not be flowing much on these trails. Lots of standing water this time of year. This place is rocky, so not really good for hard-tails. With some legitimate trail marking, maps at the trailhead, and a few man-made bridges through the swampy areas, this place would be a delight.
