Description

I chose this for my six year old's second mountain biking trail. It is amazing. Very smooth dried mud and packed dirt trail. Small rocks, banked switchbacks and small rollers offer enough to make it an authentic mountain biking experience and still be super easy.

My 6-year-old son ended up doing the loop four times - 2x clockwise and 2x counterclockwise. Clockwise is better, in my opinion.
