One of my new favorite trails. I prefer Hortons Holla which you can switch over to half way through. 12mi

can I ride this trail with a hybrid bike? Oct 8, 2015

 
yes Nov 8, 2015
Fun, rigorous trail. Trail markings did not indicate travel direction and I got a little lost on alternate trails. I ended up going against the tide with a group of racers. I'll blame my inexperience with the area, but would have thought the visitor area would have told me current events. Also, a few down trees on the trail around 3-08 3-10. Sep 24, 2017
