This trail is a combination of, dirt roads, hydro-lines and quad trails. Trail surface, varies from hard clay, to mud. And just about anything in between. 2 climbs worth mention, are the one out from Penn Lake, you may have to walk your ride up. The second, right before you arrive at The Hole. Can be challenging, depending on the mud content on the hydro-line.

Super sandy sections on old roads hard to bike without sinking and spinning out. Some rooty sections but not bad!
