This is volunteer maintenance only, so usually this trail is in rough shape. It's a shame it's my favorite close by trail. Usually grown up weeds along the trail and a lotta spider webs but they don't seem to bite.

Access Info

The trail is in the parking lot on the right in defeated creeks park area right before the rv entrance to the campgrounds it's clearly labeled after you pull in to park

 Rode this loop while staying at the campground. I was happy to find riding so close to the campground. Ride both the white and red blazed loops. White loop is fine but the red upper loop is in rough shape. Several blow downs and overgrown vegetation made this loop tough to follow and not fun to ride. With a little work it would be much better.
