  • Tough, rocky, technical trails with some awesome flowy fast stuff in between. It'll challenge every rider, whether it be with technicality, climbing, descending or speed. Lots of trail miles for hikers and horses too make it feel friendly as all the trails inevitably cross at major intersections.
  • Trail ride here all the time. They have lots of trails. Some are a bit too muddy and need to be kept up more. But we do love trailing here.
  • Very nice park. DNR will stop you if they arent stopping someone else at that given moment though for reasons unknown. They are nice but, just a nuisance.
  • Love to camp and hike here. Have always been able to find a spot. Clean hot shower.
  • Great place with excellent hiking trails. I come here to hike Greenbrier Hill and do SOTA, Summits on the Air, an Amateur radio activity.
