Fast and flowy, perfect for getting the heart rate up and crushing mile after mile. The trail is open to walkers, runners, hikers and pets on a leash but you won't have a problem seeing them because of the maintenance done on the the trail. Great little downhill section either direction you go. Oct 8, 2018

New, easy trail. Super flowy and fairly well-designed. There are several berms that actually dump you back onto the trail and not randomly off into the woods to hug a tree. You keep your speed well- I rode about half the trail in 13 minutes. It has several humps that are too low and long to be whoops or jumps, though, and just get in the way (Though they do make for a more-entertaining ride). Have been there three times with my wife to ride. My bike is a 2017 Marin Bobcat Trail 4 27.5 and it just handles perfectly through there, like it was built for it. Only issue I perceive is that, because it's fairly new and built on red GA clay, it hasn't had time to soften up yet with leaf-fall and use, so it can be pretty slick when wet if you aren't careful. Other than that, it's an excellent trail and I can't wait to ride there again! PS: Cleveland is a beautiful area, and you should visit the Babyland General Hospital while you're there. Weird, but a good story! Oct 13, 2018
