im writing this again because i dont know if they other one got in... (fail) so i would of loved to go fishing today(im a member) but too bad its closed and has been for 3 days now.. it lightly rained on sunday and now its TUESDAY! it was nice and 60 degrees out and they are closed... really? the greenway should be open EVERYDAY. who cares if there is mud? if someone gets hurt its their own fault not the greenways... thanks greenway... You ruined my entire week

I really enjoyed this trail. Not too technical for a beginner (I've only been riding for about 10 months), but enough obstacles to keep it interesting -the swinging bridges are cool, too. It's a good length; it can be a nice long ride or a short loop, depending on which sections you opt for. It could be marked a little better, though; there are horse/hiking paths that cross and overlap the mtb path, which makes reading the trail map somewhat confusing if you've never ridden here, but other than that, no complaints.

Not very large, nice for a day hike with the family. Trails are not very well marked and are shared by bikers, horses, and hikers. Trial crossing are confusing and maps are not much help. Overall, its nice for a stroll around the lake, some camping not much else
