Description - We coined a new phrase for this place - Buffed Triple track.. Mainly very well worn in double track, triple track and fire roads, with some rocky double track, and some single track.. After finally finding the Corkscrew and riding it, I definitely felt "screwed".. Not all that exciting (moderate fun at best), getting there was interesting though. Some log pyramids to tackle. Switchback trail was cool. Some steep behind the seat descents were found throughout. Wasteland trail was very cool. More exploration is required here but not a stellar ride, don't go too far out of your way to ride here. If your car runs out of gas on rte 1, right at the gate entrance I would still consider peddling to west woods, or the closest bar.
