Deer Grove Mountain Bike Trail - The mountain bike trail differs from the paved trail also reviewed on this site. It runs on 3.5 miles of dirt track on the east side of Quentin Road and another 6 miles on the west side. The west section runs through deep woods and has more challenging terrain, including rocks, roots, ruts, a number of roller-coaster hills, and lots of turns. See my site for photos and more info.
