Trail has not been well maintained and is pretty dangerous. Even the areas that have been worked on are sub par - looked as though someone rode through on an ATV and picked up the large branches only. Very confusing signage and linkages between this and Valley Branch.

Customer Service

None. Go ride Brown County, Valley Branch, or Nebo

*****2007 UPDATED REVIEW*****
This trail is very delapidated. There has not been any work done on it in a very long time. Most of the trails are not marked or you cannot see or read the signs that are there. Half of the trails are closed due to logging. All of the back trails are completely overgrown to the point of looking like the rest of the forest, there is no way to follow them. OHHH.... And there are GROUND BEES on the trail!! One of the guys got stung 20+ times. This trail has hardly any singletrack, 3-4 miles ridable at the most, just logging roads and again "watch out for the bees". At one time I think it might have been ok, but as for now it is the worst trail I have ever ridden, and I have over 50+ trails under my belt. PLEASE NOTE: The ratings of difficulty and technical are both going to be a five because you can't see or find most of the trails. You spend more time off of you bike than on.

Customer Service

I would not recommend this trail to anyone. It is a waste of time and your money.

I've ridden in the area for a long time, but never here before. The trails are great. The person below me talked about the owner(older gentleman), but he is no longer with us. His daughter runs the place, and it still looks great. trails are nice, people are friendly...its a great place to ride.

Customer Service

Cliffhanger. Narrow in the side of a ravine, with very little room for error.

I am amazed at how down to earth and hospitable the owners are. It is old school. They trust you unless you give them a reason not to. The trails, facilities, scenery, and legacy of the place is awesome. The 70 foot tall pine trees that cover the Haunted Hill trail were planted in 1944 by the elderly gentleman that will probably greet you in the driveway right after the Retrievers. I felt guilty only paying $3 to ride there. This place is obviously in the owner's blood. If you go, they expect you to treat it as your own. They very much prefer that you call ahead. A really cool place for kids.

This trail system is huge and the owners are adding new trails all the time. I wish there was a very well marked out long loop because you will find yourself stopping and looking at signs then at your map and trying to decide where to go. Gnaw Bone Camp is for the Moutain Biker who likes to explore. Stay for the weekend and try'em all.

Customer Service

Start at general store and take a left behind it on double track up the hill and start exploring.

We went with a group of around 10 people of various skill and fitness levels. Everyone had a good workout with some climbs and descents. Wide open double tracks were great for the intermediate riders. Did not get to ride all of the trails and will go back soon. The people at the camp site were very friendly and helpful. I wish everyone treated mtbikers this way in Indiana.

Customer Service

46 from Columbus, take 135 south approx 5min and sign is on the left. Take gravel road to camp area

Great trails with many different elements. Climbs that make you wish you never started the trail, and crazy downhills that will tickle your crazy side.

Customer Service

Many routes, depends on how long you plan on staying. 3-4hours on long loop.
