Description

All rides start here. This trailhead begins across the street from the swimming pool parking lot. In the summertime, the pool is a great spot to cool down after a hot ride. There is a kiosk and a few picnic tables in the shade nearby, also.

You have to begin on this trail to reach other parts of the trail system. Riding this loop counter-clockwise gives you a steeper climb with a few switchbacks, but gives you a long, straight downhill to finish. Ride it clockwise and that long, straight downhill becomes a long grind uphill and those steep switchback climbs become a more technical descent. Ride it counter-clockwise if you're a newer rider or want a faster downhill.

Once at the top of the bluff, this trail winds through the forest with relatively little elevation change, hence its beginner rating. There's nothing terribly technical about this trail, but keep your eyes peeled for evidence of the karst landscape (hint: sinkholes!). Some of them are right along the trail.
