A fairly flat trail with some sand.

Description

When riding from north to south, you leave the Trestle to Trestle paved trail near the north side of the Tai Village pond. This area has a low spot that sometimes has a small area of standing water. About 1/10 of a mile in, you'll come across a fun 20 drop next to the Des Moines River. Then, follow some nice flowing curvy trail through the woods with a few banked corners, a small log over and one area that takes you right to the edge of the river. Dont veer left or you may get wet.

Shortly after, the trail splits for a short distance. There is some sand to go through if you take the proper trail option to the left, otherwise, you can get around it by taking the split straight, but what fun is that?! The rest of the trail is fairly flat with some flowing corners and small up and down sections that you can carry good speed through. This is a trail is a fun option for the first-time rider or seasoned veteran.
