A smooth, flowing, fun trail.

Description

The best description of this trail is that it is fun. It's a local favorite.

The trail is well designed and has good flow. You can usually harness speed from the downhill to clean the next uphill. It does feature plenty of climbing although you hardly notice it. The surface is generally smooth and hard packed, with some sandy spots. There are a mix of fun downhill sections as well as winding back and forth across the side the ridge along the northernmost part of the trail.
This trail is numbered to be ridden clockwise, but can be ridden either direction so lookout for oncoming riders.

If you hit the trail at the right time of year, there's also an entire field of delicious blackberries.
