The main loop consists of smooth, nicely flowing singletrack with plenty of banked turns. It's nearly impossible to get lost - just follow the marked trail until you get back to the parking lot.

There's an optional Inner Loop that branches off this loop - take that trail if you want a bit more of a technical challenge to keep things interesting.
