Description

The trails are more or less a lollipop system with another lollipop offshoot from the main loop. You'll enter the trailhead and there will be a map board beside it. Upon getting to the split you'll see a sign telling you the direction for the day.

This is a brand new trail built in co-op between the Army Corp of Eng and IMBA. Multiple SORBA chapters helped put the finishing touches on this trail and it will only get faster as its ironed in. Super fast fun and very flowy is how I would describe this awesome new addition to the NEGA area. All the fun of FATS without the drive!

Lots of roots but scenic lake views throughout! Campground DOES NOT let you in for a loop, tour, bathroom access or anything if you are not camping. 6mi
