Trail Review(s)
Rider - Eric
We were told this trail was i the best shape because of all the work the local bike shop had done on it lately.  Although the trees had been cleared, it was still a pretty loose climb and steep descent.  Nothing really jumped out to us that set this trail above any others.  If anything, the huge water bars made of timbers on steep climbs put it below all other trails we rode in the area.
Would you ride again?
Probably not, either way the climb was loose and just a little too steep to enjoy it.  It was okay coming down, but it was nothing to write home about.
Any suggestions?
Skip this one and try all the other great trails in the area, unless that is you really want a hill climb.
