Nic West features nice wooded and field views. The entire trail is sloped and winds through the woods. 

This trail is not maintained in Winter but it is usually open year round. There is a small rest area that commonly washes out a bit so you can do a small crawl over that part.

Went by this last Saturday but couldn't get on. As the other review mentioned the road is not maintained in winter, but the snow plows do use both sides of this road to push extra snow. Plowed snow at "trail head" was about 4 feet high. Since it is close I think i might give it another shot after some of the snow has melted in a week or two. Until then looks like Snow mobile country only.
