needs to have leaves raked, can barley see trail, needs to be marked better, if you want to go just to mess around this is your place, at the top the trail to the bottom is fun although it takes only 2 min, looks as if it isn't ridden much

Great small trail system. The ramps they had next to the trail head has been replaced with a ridable ewok ramp. you can still get air on it, but now you can at least ride down the other side. The log ride is still open (ride at your own risk!) but the longer log and ewok combo is closed. Like the owner said in the prevoious post, they are doing needed work to the trail. The red (advanced) trail has lots of downed trees and isn't worth riding right now. With them putting in the new lake the access trail from the trail head in now a bull dozer road. You'll have to look hard up to the right to see the trail now. They're rerouting the yellow trail around the lake. Watch out for tools laying right next to the trail! Defintely going to be worth coming back in the Fall and see what they've been able to fet done.

I like doing the yellow loop once each direction. Until the connector trail from the trail head is fixed I would ride down form the parking lot on the road till you see the field on the left. Trail goes along the fence, left goes back into the woods and right crosses a stream. Follow it either way. Trail is pretty well marked with biking signs. It does get confusing when you get to the lake, the loop overlaps itself for a sort while. Its easiest ot follow the trail to the right side of the lake. Once you come back around the lake, you'll know where to go if you ride the whole yellow loop again in the other direction.

We have cut in new trail around to the camp water treatment plant so the trail should be easier to follow. Thanks for your putting up with the interuption of the trail. We are also doing some much needed maintance work on existing trails so hopefully things will be much better the rest of the summer. All trails should be clearly marked and trails will be clear.

Good, good trails, hope they continue to a distance to what they have so far. If you go, look for the gully section just up from the parking lot, its my favorate section, except for the long downhill. Should be ok by sat. to ride.

Good trail for every skill level. Girlfriend busted butt on advanced jump but she'll live to ride again. Bridges, good climbs, jumps, and fast downhills all on one loop. What more could you ask for? Owner (John) was very freindly and on top of things. Trail was a little overgrown but he was taking care of the problem while we rode. Good Times!!

Customer Service

Follow the signs!! Watch out for that ramp it will get ya. Ask Abby!

Rode this past weekend, the trails are getting smother and faster. New section off of original is really good. Looks like they are adding some new stuff (jumps and ladders) These trails dry up pretty fast, rode 2 days after the last big rain last week.

Customer Service

I like riding in a figure 8 pattern, just ride and you will see what I mean.

This course was awesome. There was allot of thought put into this trail. There was everything from giant hill climbs, log crossings over creek beds. There were several obstacles placed on the trail. The path markings were kind of sketchy at some points, but all in all this was a great course! It is worth the drive for anyone to come see!

Just start riding you can't go wrong!

Upon parking at the Higher Ground/Deer Park trailhead, you will notice alot of thought has gone into this small loop trail system. Overall, this trail was extremely fun to ride as it can be challenging and fast or easy and slow. You can tell this multi-use trail was created by Mountain bikers as the numerous bridge crossings, log stacks and other fun additions make this fun. The only thing this trail lacks is a better map and clearly defined loop options. It seems 2 or 3 rides and you'll get it down. I'll be back... Often

Customer Service

Any route will do as you're always pretty close to the service roads

This is a very solid short trail. It is generally not very technical, but does have a couple of good places to play and test your skills. Does have a good mix of hills, which does cause for a good burn. As a real plus, it is generally not a crowded area, which does allow you to get away from it all. Also due to the layout of the routes, you are never too far from your vehicle, so it is not necessary to carry your tools if you want to ride light.
