      Great trail, with 4 miles of riding! All the features are in great condition; the wall ride, drop-in, jumps, and teeter-tooter. Best honey hole...

       The best honey hole around!! I had the whole trail to myself, was able to hit every feature until I got it down. This trail geared for all riders, and will put a smile on your face. I was able to meet the two builders, while I was there, and they are constantly keeping it updated. There are three to four entrances to the trail from the hard track ( asphalt), so you can hit the section that is your favorite. If you want your legs to get a good burn go to the billy goat trail. Well hope to see you out there!
