"Am I lost? Wasn't I just here?" is what you'll be thinking after a few hundred feet of this twisty-turny marvel of a trail. The builders made the most of the area did an exceptional job at making it interesting and fun. It is like Flat Pete 2.0. Make this a must if you're doing a ride in the Fort.

      Extremely muddy and wet. With good weather this week it should be dried up enough to ride next week (April 30).

       Next time I ride this one I will put the map in my GPS. I found myself wondering if I was going in circles but in the end it all worked out. Technical trail though the brush.
