As you enter the Orange Trail, you'll begin to find yourself in some of the more technical sections in Hayes Arboretum. The Orange Trail starts with a short, fast drop to the base to the first long climb. You'll then descend along the ridge to a series of short steep switchbacks bringing you to the top of the ridge once more.
As you follow the ridge you'll pass a well-built log ride, the log ride gives you an alternate route and is a great way to make a pass on your buddies. The trail then descends to the back side of the ridge and begins to transition into a series of fast flat sections containing log crossings and sweeping turns.
