A nice intermediate trail with roots/rocks and some short, steep climbs.

Description

Maps are available at the parking area, and five well-marked loops are available, ranging from a one-mile family ride to a 10.5-11.2 mile (my GPS measures this shorter than the trail map does) intermediate/moderately technical ride. There are several short, steep climbs, including one that I've never seen cleared. There are also a couple of ramps built as options for more advanced riders.

The trail offers beautiful views of Lake Jordan and the Swayback Bridge from the Black and Red Trails.

It's rarely busy, and trail runners/hikers are generally very aware/polite to bikers. Has a water hose and enclosed changing area for post ride clean-up.
