       Remote singletrack. The middle section after you get up on the plateau can be a bit boring when riding south/up. Kind of felt like a road ride, not much there for a modern trail ride. ( Great for bikepacking, covering ground )

      Things did improve when headed down/north - the small corners/curves in trail were a bit more interesting, and the final descent back to the stateline campground was quite fun.

      Pros: no crowds, primitive remote singletrack
      Cons: primitive remote singletrack Wink not a berm in sight!
