Description

This route is approximately 3 miles and covers most of the trails at Matchett. You can always do some loops and criss-cross for more distance. The trails here have no names so it's hard to provide a route description, but look at the route and map and you'll have no problem.

The terrain here is very flat. The trails are basically small dirt roads that cross through the fields. The surface is hard-pack earth and gravel.

Trail Conditions
These trails can get very muddy if it's been raining or snowing. Check weather and consider your footwear.

Note
Some areas are designated private property. Follow the signs and stick to the trails.
