“Fast, flowy trails in a condensed trail system.”— Josh Matta
These trails are bi-directional, but flow best when ridden clockwise. Start your ride from the parking area and head up the switchback visible on the grassy hillside. The trail is well marked and you'll follow the signs for the Green Trail until you see a sign for the Yellow Trail. You'll continue up on mostly easy climbing singletrack though woods and open meadows and past a small podium until finally you're at the Red Trail intersection.
You'll have climbed roughly 450 feet so far and you'll be on top of the easier Yellow Trail and Green Trail. You start your descent on the Yellow Trail which is much easier, more mellow, and more pedally than the Orange Trail. The Yellow trail twists and weaves down with some really fun double/tabletops and mix of flat and bermed turns. After a table top into a 180 degree berm turn you'll be on gravely doubletrack, hold your speed and take the next right to get to the top of the Green Trail.
The Green Trail is the easiest trail here but its not any less fun. You'll find more of the Yellow trail type features here with great table tops. Its a great trail for people just learning how to Pump/Jump and rail berms. The Green Trail put you out on a wider fire road and you can take that all the way down to the Outdoor Center. Do not forget the last little bit of singletrack to your car.
These trails are a blast just please do not ride when the ground is soft.
