32 miles of various loops.

Local Rider Input
These under used trails have great potential for excellent riding, but they are usually found to be in need of maintenance.  Mostly just a lot of branches or trees down.  Ride the Beech Creek Trail to Beech Creek, or do the Walnut Hill Loop.  Forget the Blue Bouncer, it is a real looser.  Too steep and poorly laid out.  With a little use and maintenance, these trails would be as good as any in the state.
