This new trail system opened to the public during the summer of 2010. All trails are marked and organized into nice long loops. There is plenty of parking at the trailhead plus some warm up areas for beginners and advanced riders.

Primitive camping is permitted and additional trails and maintenance are planned for the future. Look for more improvements within the next couple years.
