still some trails left, but this is a very well maintained fire road, has very little single track, still has been destroyed by loggers and the everybody that uses timber products, like me but it has not that many single track and kind of like a ghost town around there now, and then the gates open for hunting season and then this place gets crowded with hunters and 4x4 's but it is a very good cross country trail, my guess about 7 miles it comes out on Pinkey road right turn pass Cannon road coming from the Deer Island store, has some trails i have never been on so come out and explore with me, does has a creek that runs year round and lots of hills to climb

this trail is no longer there, logging some time ago, just bits and pieces left of this trail, a lot of up hill and fire roads, some dead ends, you have to look really hard to find any thing left, lots of other places near by, good place to get lost if you never been here, bring a lunch and enjoy the clear cut

was out there today,and the down pour began before i made it to the second jump, it was red clay covered in rain, lots of ruts full of water and very slippery out there, by the power lines there is a little section of singletrack that was amazing, even the climbs where slippery and branches everywhere from the last wind storm, both trails looked in great shape and nobody in sight for miles it was a soaker but very satisfying. what a great trail system after you find your way through, the fire roads are made of rock and clay the short ride on the fire road was a bumpy one, this is a long hike for a short single track. got to love both for this trail.

Customer Service

try parking at the top of smith road where it crosses axil road and park there, before the white gate there is a quad trail, take that north to the bottom then turn left on the and go that way for 2 mi. look single track by the power lines .

was very good ,hours and hours spent out there, still finding new trials,and finding my way through the loggers, the best part of this single track is at the top. knowing the are is key to know because of the weather or darkness falling,they are many deadends and a lot of climbing, i don't need a map, just follow motorcycle tracks and bring markers to find your way back somtimes, i found many single track mostly north of smith road,look for fire foad down from gate,stay to the right along the creek then go up and take the 2nd right up small single track splits, but both go up to fire rd. stay right then left should nd your way n.e. to smith rd. cross gate, look for single track on left before hitting the aspalt go down into valley take a left at the bottom turn left on fire rd. back west along the bottom and look for powerlines and more single track every where.

Customer Service

the area has many gates you can enter from many are closer to the action, try this one,hwy 30 west turn left on smith rd. in columbia city,go on this dirt rd. about five miles stay to the right at the top of the hill, look for a blue gate on the right and dart creek rd.

This is one kick butt place to ride. If I lived closer I would be out there everyday. The downhill sections are just raging. This trail is definitely worth the drive. Go check it out.

Customer Service

The route is self explanatory. Just follow the trail and you can't get lost.

I love this place for riding. It is very challenging and exciting. Not recommended for novices unless you have full suspension. You gotta check this place out!!!

Customer Service

I would recommend going up the first trail you come to on your left. Once you get to the top be prepared for one heck of a downhill ride through beautiful forests.

This place is my playground. The downhill sections are awesome, while the climb is a beautiful ride. The singletracks are absolutely beautiful. I never see anyone out there working on them, but someone must groom them weekly. Go out there and have some fun, but tread lightly.

Customer Service

Their is basically only one route to take, so I suggest that you follow that one. The downhill route is too steep to climb, so it is out of the picture.

This was by far the worst day I have ever spent outdoors. There are two trails in the whole area about 100 yards long. The clay and mud on these trails was so bad I was stopping every 15 feet too clean the muck out just to be able to ride. The rest is nothing but fire roads that climb forever and then offer at the most 5 minutes of downhill. Bottom line..you are a fool if you either ride here or plan on riding here. These three idots that ride here are fuc%ing morons.

first of all there are many routes to choose from so it is definately not self explanatory. we were constantly forced to decide which way to go at the many forks in the "trail"
All of the routes that we chose basically sucked. It was mostly gravel roads. At one point the clay was so thick we had to stop and carry our bikes (which at that point weighed about 80lbs) to a dry spot to pick all the crap off of our bikes with sticks just so the geartrain would actually work again. We found one short muddy trail with a short but technical downhill that lasted about 1 minute. If any of you dillusional people ever go ride there again please leave some sort of trail marker to this "extreme downhill" because in the 3 hours we spent there all we found was mud, a dead mole, gravel roads, some old moldy poop, budweiser cans, a torn pair of underwear and a deer. I hate to be negative but man did this trail sucked!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
please be more descriptive about where to go so that other people do not waste what could have been a good day of riding.

Customer Service

none, unless you enjoy riding with your grandma on gravel roads.

You go around the blue gate, and the first singletrack is off to your right. It is easy to miss if you are going to fast. This is a very challenging section with one 3ft dropoff, and a couple of man made stunts. Make sure your helmet is strapped on tightly, and if you don't crash then you are using your brakes too much and damaging the trail.

Customer Service

I don't know what the problem was for the two guys who reviewed this trail beneath me. They clearly must have taken the wrong turnoff to get there.

This is an excellent place to ride. I went out on a beautiful day with my friend, and we didn't encounter any other bikers. This was surprising for such a fun place to ride. The ground was really dry. If must be from either very little usage, or just the type of soil. I will be heading back once the weather clears up. I feel it is definitely worth my 45 minute drive.
