If possible, ride your first ride here with someone who knows the trail because it can be confusing. There are few markings, the trail gets faint, & private land is mingled throughout. Be careful not to trespass. The Cedar Creek crossing has a steep side which can become dangerous when wet. Watch for down wire and use the self closing gates when going through pastures. The Baskett Wildlife Area has ongoing research so, stay on the developed trail when riding through it.
Other Trail Users:
