reporter Some parts are very bushy, expect your arms and legs to be whipped. The areas where the wild fire from the summer burned the forest is really fast.

Recent forest fire has burned 3500 acres. The long bridge was cut in half after part of it burned. Trails are closed indefinitely.

 Rode Batsto for the first time yesterday. Despite a lot of rain this past week, conditions were perfect.
Some sections were the tightest singletrack I have ever ridden. If you are riding really wide bars, it will be an issue.

Due to lack of elevation, soft ground (sandy soil and pine needles) and nothing to pump, you are constantly pedaling.

It is a great spot for:
taking beginner riders
riding when everything else is too muddy
winter base miles

Overall, I had a lot of fun. It is hard to imagine it getting too wet to ride here. I grew up riding motorcycles in South Jersey; it reminded me of that, so I may be a little bias.
