Need to Know
There is a Porta-Potty in the parking lot.
Phase 2 began March 2016 with the addition of 5 miles of trails. There are some lung busting climbs, and bugs in your teeth down hills. Like Phase 1, the trails are winding, and flow very well. Both Phase 1 and 2 trails drain very quickly after a rain storm.
If you use the MTB Project mobile app, your GPS should track your every move. But if you get lost, look for the "P" for parking signs. They give you directions at trail intersection points, and guide you back to the parking lot.
