Went down there this morning and while I'm glad I went I wouldn't call it a euphoric epic experience. Does it have a ton of potential, absolutely! I only did a total 30 mile out and back because I got tired of bushwacking and picking off ticks. There are some sections that were or could be st worthy but the majority of it felt like the horses owned this trail. I talked to two horse riders at one point and they said, "Yeah, we was wondering because we saw your tracks". Yes, the enemy has landed! Regardless, it was some doubletrack mixed with trail. I would not call it groomed singletrack as there were many trees down and the trail needed trimming but the basics are there. It reminded of GF with the loose rocks and babyheads BUT without the elevation. I hope Lick Creek is a little more st friendly. A good adventure, none the less and there are 41 pics so enjoy.

TRAIL WELL MARKED
OVERGROWN BUT STILL RIDEABLE
TICKS (PICKED OFF 14 TOTAL THROUGH OUT THE RIDE)
