This trail is currently completed as a full loop trail where the close side loop can be ridden, or the far side loop, or the full loop. The trail rides great in either direction.

The trail is very well laid out in the terrain available, probably one of the best locally. This trail barely has any straight lengths, with many twists and turns around trees and terrain, many having well-designed berms. There are also many areas that are bench cut into the side of a hill, and some other areas that have been left intentionally off camber.

The trail has almost zero rocks, and very minimal roots, so beginners can fair pretty well here. There are some short, punchy climbs, which turn into nice flowing ways to gain speed on the way back.

The trail is a fun and exciting ride and worth checking out.

The Lake Milton State Park trail system as a whole is still under development by the Rust Belt Revival Trail Coalition, however, this trail is complete and ready to ride

       this trail would be even sweeter with more drainage, a few more berms, maybe a couple gaps or drops (appropriately located of course)

       If this trail is multi directional it should be scheduled and posted on the sign. There‚Äôs no where nearly enough room in most sections for two bikers to pass easily.

       I'm sure RBRTC at some point may consider making this an official multi-directional trail based on certain days. Currently people ride the trail various directions depending on how far they want to ride.
