6.8 miles of mostly flat overgrown trail, with .2 miles of a chunky downhill section. Sure a couple fun spots, but never doing it again. Don't know why I did it the 2nd time.

 The guy who wrote the bad review for Broken Mesa may not have ridden Icehouse. Icehouse IS the worst trail I've ever ridden. I'm sure it was quite the rip at one point in time, but it's now an unmaintained mess.

The start is difficult to find - even with the GPS track. "Where's the trail? Apparently I'm standing right on it!" Once on the trail, you'll still need to reference your GPS, since it's indistinguishable at times from drainage channels or just pain not there. Most sections are riddled with babyhead sized loose volcanic rock. Wouldn't be surprised if I was the first to ride it this year (March 2016).

But wait, there's more! At last, you reach the junction with the Broken Mesa trail. Should be good from here on out right? Wrong! More of the same, but the trail becomes slightly more defined. The final descent to the doubletrack exit is a real piece of work, hope you don't have any loose fillings. Another rocky mess that's not even a good hiking trail.

Once at the bottom, be sure to pull out your allen wrenches and re-tighten all the bolts on your steed. You'll need it for the nearly 2.5mile monotonous slog on the powerline doubletrack back to the main road.

I'd give it zero stars if possible. Avoid...unless you're a masochist.
