There are many well defined trails. Some are very challenging but there are some that beginners can enjoy. Easy access free parking. Excellent signage. Ring the bell halfway around the main loop!!!

Enjoyed a fun morning ride on a fat tire bike. Like previous reviews have stated, the trail flows easily & route signage is good. Regardless of skill level, this is a scenic & well maintained trail.

The signage at the start of the trail + along the way were very clearly understandable and helpful. The trails were clearly marked and easy to follow. Wide trails with signs along the way identifying trees. Well done!

I see you got the address. It is a well marked trail. I was surprised how easy it was to navigate the trails. They did a great job at marking them and having the measurements correct.
