This trail is a blast. It starts out kind of easy and flat through the woods. Then at marker 4.5 theres a big hill and for the next mile and a half you are going up and down good size hills.

Customer Service

Take the outside path the first time.

This set of trails is a lot of fun. The main outside loop starts out pretty flat but you can ride fast through it. Then towards the end of the trail there is about of a mile and a half of good size hills, the first hill is awsome(pretty steep be carful but have blast on it). Then are a few more good size hills and climbs. Have Fun.

Customer Service

The outside loop is the longest and the best. Don't skip the hilly section

The trail starts off with just singletrak, but the farther you go the better it gets. The hills get bigger and the turns get sharper. The very last loop is the best part of this trail. If you have guts take the "CAUTION" trail. If you don't take the "BY-PASS". The steep trail is the funnest by far. This loop starts with an intense downhill, and I do mean intense!!! The loop is super hilly with bits of sand. This trail is definetly worth trying to find it.

Customer Service

Follow the trail clockwise.

This is trail that you could feel comfortable bringing a beginner on, yet an old pro can still get in a good workout. The trail is nicely hard packed for the most part and well marked with numbered posts and corresponding maps. There are occasionally small pockets of very navigatable soft sand at the bottom of the descents, but for the most part this is a trail you can run very hard and fast.
From marker 4 to 6 the excitement is at it's best.
You start with a very steep, yet rideable descent, and from there begins roughly 1.5 miles of small to medium climbs and drops.
I enjoyed this section so much that when I arrived at marker 6, I took the cut thru section back to 4 and rode it again.
For the beginner there is a bypass which allows you to miss this section.The main outside loop is roughly 7.4 miles but I'd suggest if you have energy leftover to
pick up the shortcut sections as well. Overall I got about 10 miles out of it.
I will rate this a 3 only because I enjoy the fear of death a tad bit more than this has to offer, but if you're in the area or want to check out something new
you've never ridden I would have no problem recommending it.

NOTE: Once you turn on Wayne, reset your trip meter,
the unmarked 2 track is exactly 1.5 miles on your right.
