“A little something for everyone, and a challenge for anyone.”— Joe Switek
This trail may be tough for riders who are not as strong, since it has a fair amount of mild but long climbs but don't let that keep you away!
Turn left and head over the harder loop qualifier, which should be easily ridden by anyone making it to that point. Don't let it be a deterrent to continuing, because the trail just gets better. The surface of the trail becomes rougher, more roots and rocks the bridges are narrower. The loop will bring you past some of the more interesting technical features, such as an extreme uphill rock garden or a stone bridge.
The awesome "Bird Loop" is back open! Enjoy this roughly half mile sprint through some flowy woods entered by hopping through a now-opened gate and returning just a few yards down the trail
In all the climbing and descending, the trail dips in and out of the woods and the prairie, leading the rider back to the beginning of the outer loop. Follow the left fork to return to the start of the trail.
Climb up and over the ridge and get dumped out into the prairie one last time, put it in high gear and practice your hops, pumps, cornering and direction changes right back to the parking lot.
