Updated 3-30-06 - Finished mapping this network finally.. White dot trail had SUPER tech rock garden by stream. Green trail started wide but turned into a nice section of singletrack.. Checked out the north side, just one main trail, rocky doubletrack, but lay of the land would be perfect for cross stuntry..
Description - Combination of Double track and pretty nice semi rocky singletrack in this small network of well marked trails.. The feel of the woods is a cross between westwoods and cock-south. No gonzo techs but short moderately technical sections, some rock, some trails on the edge of cliffs, some hike a bike.. Trail system is marked just like westwoods, with X markings for connector trails. A white X off the red trail will bring you to the white trail.. A red X off a red trail will be some sort of shortcut, or longcut, that brings you back to the red trail..
