Follow IMBA rules of the trail and respect the open/closed sign at the trailhead.
On this ride, you'll encounter a little bit of everything. You'll experience smooth, flowing turns, rock gardens, punchy climbs, boardwalk sections, a few rock step-ups and log-overs and no less than four stream crossings. The stream crossings are normally dry and never have more than an inch of water when trails are dry enough to be ridden. Overall, a good, fun ride. If you need a longer ride, do a lap as shown counter-clockwise followed by a clockwise lap.
Need to Know
All technical sections are short enough that beginners can walk them in about a minute and continue riding. This is a good place to gain confidence and skill.
I would suggest riding these trails counter-clockwise. The first two miles or so are smooth and flow really well and are mostly downhill. About half-way in, the trail starts to get more challenging as you climb back up. From the half-way point, you are challenged more with tree roots and other obstacles. A beginner might not like the north half (Paw Paws Run).
Overall, this is a trail you'll grow to love for its variety of features.
