 Fun loop with one of the steepest descents around.

 This is not a proper mountain bike trail and there are no signs at all that anyone is maintaining it. The soil is very loose with large rock, not usually a problem but the climbs on this trail are very steep and it's near impossible to navigate. Several sections had to be hiked because of downed trees or washed out rock slides. If your on a plus bike or fat bike and looking to suffer this trail is perfect for you, otherwise drive 15 minutes down Hwy 52 and ride Pinhoti 3, a proper trail.

 A difficult and rough trail loop usually ridden clockwise. I guess it could be described as "old school". I would only recommend this trail for advanced riders. The powerline descent is one of the fastest and roughest around. There are many climbs full of loose rocks. There is a lot of good scenery throughout the loop during the spring and fall. I wouldn't recommend this trail in the summer because some parts get overgrown with stinging nettle which is extremely irritating if you brush up against it. I've seen comments about not being marked well but there seems to be new signs at all intersections and a few trail maps along the trail. The park does clear downed trees pretty regularly too.
