This area is a fun place for a beginner/intermediate ride.
The main loop consists of smooth, nicely flowing singletrack with plenty of banked turns. There is an inner loop trail that is geared toward the technical rider with a handful of interesting skinnies and jumps.
Need to Know
It's a popular equestrian destination and horses (and their droppings) can be found on the trail. Please be aware and respect them as well as the occasional runner/walker.
Most trail intersections are marked, guiding you around the Perimeter Trail
Around the 5 mile mark there's a fork in the trail to guide you to the Inner Loop
. Stay to the right to ride this trail, where you'll find some additional technical moves to keep more advanced riders busy. There are a bunch of skinnies and jumps before the trail loops back around to meet up with the Perimeter loop again.
If you stay left at the first intersection with the Inner Loop
, you can continue on the Perimeter Trail
and skip the more difficult section.
