Typical conditions early summer and throughout summer are excellent with some trails pretty muddy but easily rideable. Some single track sections are very tough. Beautiful trails that offer a little bit for everyone. Bring a map- or at least look at the trailhead maps!
[August 6, 2008] Having ridden on and off here for years I was please to see the new connectors to the far off singletrack. The trail surfaces are in very good shape but this area is crying out for trail work time. The brush is growing over the trails in many places making it a new type of technical style of riding. A style that is not very much fun unfortunately.

Trail are dry for the most part, but there are 2 trails(maggie rocks and hyperspace) that are extremely muddy still. Good fun riding, nothing too technical, but definitely a good ride if you are in the area.
