The Main Trail winds through an old forest and tends to be a bit littered with acorns, small rubble and tree debris. It doesn't see much traffic, probably because there isn't a lot of mileage here. But the loop is nice, with lots of roots and one optional punchy climb. there is a short offshoot considered expert, but the wood has rotted a bit, and isn't much different than the main trail.

Rolling clockwise you eventually dump out to an old service road that has slowly become a bit of single track down a wide straight area. You can get some good speed and you can race back to the start pretty quick.

Tacky with a few mud patches. A little overgrown due to recent rain.

 I wouldn’t go out of my way to ride here, it’s decent but it could use some cleanup.
