From reading these reviews and others. Plus looking at pictures I thought I knew what I was getting into. It was said that this is a gravel/ballast trail. Well I went to the Grove St parking area that another person mentioned and started out there. It was all moguls for like the 1 1/2 miles. It was rocky with lose dirt at points I was riding along the edge but there are drop offs along the edge. Now I love to bike and hike but I HATE moguls. Plus there were fallen trees I had to skirt around. I was so excited to drive the 30 minutes to get the trail but it was not worth it and I just turned back after awhile. No where did I ever see anyone mention moguls. There were signs posted saying no motorized vehicles but I did see several dirt bikes having a blast. Good for them bad for us bikers because there were tearing up the trail. Next time I go I might try to start at another section. From other peoples photos it looks like a beautiful trail. Had I brought my laptop I could have found free wireless and found another place to start but I left it at home.
