Also all the trails are visible in Google maps... Turn on the satellite view and you will see the trails overlayed on the map.

That map you made was a lifesaver a few weeks ago.

Small game season starts today, Sept 15. Watch out for blasting out there, especially on the weekends.

After attempting to ride this trail, I now I know why this trail doesn't get much love. I know I was pre-warned...

I understand sharing with equestrian trails, but there is significant amount of 'mines' or piles to deal with. The trail markings definitely could be a bit better, there were many junctions with no clear direction on which way to go or direction of travel.

Having said that, there were some really nice fast sections and good trails, but there are better marked trails with much less *beep* to deal with nearby.

Heads up for a Deer Blind on Loop 3 right after the water pump. Its about 300 yards after the pump and really close to the trail. Its bow season, get your orange on, and try and ride outside of the normal hunting hours.
