The low vegetation out here makes for an endless horizon, and the singletrack goes as far as the eye can see. Though they could be marked a bit better, the vast network of loops offers epic opportunities that it would take far more than a single day to exhaust. Time for a bit of honesty: I sorta got lost out here. The trails are amazing, and it looks simple enough on a map; but I was without compass, the day was totally overcast, and I was riding on a weekday, so there was no one around to ask for guidance. Excuses, excuses. The northern portion of the trail system is pretty well marked as loops break from the main trail and connect again down the line, but the southern half is a sprawling conglomerate of main paths and crisscrosses that can have the first-timer riding in circles. Even so, the riding—circular or otherwise—is loads of fun, ranging from steep, nasty stuff to long easy strolls. One piece of advice: Allow plenty of riding time. Tread: Mostly singletrack, some doubletrack.
