Fun biking with some roots, drops, climbs and a few rocks.

Features -none-

One way, counter-clockwise. Sometimes is closed for races.

Overview

Mostly woody singletrack over roots. It has some nice drops and downhills including the gully trail with some fun whoop-de-doos. There is an option on the Softball Field loop to do the "short track" which includes the best part of that loop.

Description

Start out on the Volleyball Loop with some mostly flat and open singletrack weaving through the frisbee golf course. Hit a few drops and some bumpy clay sections before going in and out of the woods a couple of times, passing near the volleyball and tennis courts briefly. The wooded sections feature some ups and downs, with a few obstacles, roots, switchbacks, and drops.

Eventually you'll come to the short, optional gully trail. The gully trail consists of a series of whoop-de-doos before merging back onto the main trail. Continue on the rooty trail down a large hill, a steep climb, and then onto more rooty singletrack. Eventually you start hearing a whirring sound and you cross a bridge and see some type of equipment making the sound beside a gravel road with a climb.

Turn right into the parking lot and go straight until you see the next loop starting - the Softball Loop. This loop has a main trail and a short track. Stay left shortly after the start for the short track. The short track has a few berms before meeting up with the main trail. Stay right for the main trail.

Bike on more rooty, wooded singletrack until you reach a rooty difficult climb. Clear the climb and continue on some fast singletrack, over a bridge and then a short climb to connect back with the short track.

After reaching a doubletrack turn right into the woods again with some fun downhill, berms and bumps/jumps. Continue on until a small climb leads you to decide which rock obstacle you want to take. Going left is more difficult than going right.

After the rocks, it's your choice whether to take a right onto some doubletrack that leads you back to the parking lot or take a hard left to continue on a little more singletrack. If you take the singletrack, a few small downhills and climbs lead you back to the doubletrack. Turn right to reach the parking lot.
