    I think a decent big bike rider could do all of them except for the rocky hill climb at the end of the bike loop in Marienville.

    We did a lot of this last weekend on 1200GS, 1200GSA, and 1190 Adventure. It was pouring rain on us all day just to up the ante a bit. It takes some experience and big bike handling skills but entirely doable and a fun place to ride. We camped in Marienville and did a lot of it in a day skipping the rock garden section.

    Where the bike trail crosses 66 the second time turn left onto 66 then right onto Duhring/327 then pick up the trail to the left where it crosses.

    OK. Thanks...the rocks would be tough on a big bike for sure.

    I do this ride every year on quads for Memorial day and Labor day, this year I brought along my DRZ and did all of Timberline and Marienville (including the bike trail).
    There is a way to skip the "rock garden" while staying on the trail by veering to the right on the bypass when you come upon it... tho I can't imagine it being any fun on those big bikes. My quad at Timberline trailhead.

    Here I am at Willow Creek Trail head, which while short is worth the stop and also affords you some more time to explore the dirt roads near there.

    Never tried Willow creek. How is it compared to rocky gap. I haven't tried it yet because it looks to be about an hour from where I stay in Sheffield.

    IMHO Willow Creek is a mix of very flowy trail that has been sanitized a bit with fill followed by a middle section that is pretty technical with roots and rocks. It gets relatively light use so its not destroyed with 4 wheeler ruts in every turn like Rocky Gap. Assuming you have a bike of course. Its also pretty short.

    I've been debating whether the short amount of trail was worth the extra drive we are usually out there for only 3 days and ride all of marienville, timberline and rocky gap.

    It's an alright trail, I'd never do it again but I wasn't unhappy I went there either. Idk.

    Majestic Trails is just up the road and has much more varied riding, well worth the $20 day pass. I'd recommend it over Willow Creek.

    Agree on that. If we are going to drive the hour it's probably better to go to majestic..I haven't been there in a few years...Kind of forgot about the place.
