“Possibly the best trail system in the midwest, with plenty of challenges for everyone.”— Drew Pace
Family Friendly Full disc golf course, pump track, skills area, and barn hang out area with nice grass are all great for the whole family.
The next section of trail you come to is the bundle of switchbacks. There are a few technical sections on the switchbacks that can be challenging, but other than those its just mostly some climbing. The trail is mostly hard pack dirt and rock, but there are some patches of loose gravel here and there.
Once you get to the top of the switchbacks, you enter a section of trail that has many rollers. This is truly one of the most enjoyable sections on the trail. The section features nice smooth dirt and if you keep your speed up in the flat sections, you'll cruise through this section with a big smile on your face. From here, the ride is mostly flat with some uphill and downhill sections. The terrain remains mostly hard pack dirt and rocky and you experience riding through heavier woods and open grassy areas (during the summer the grass can get very tall so wear your bug spray).
You'll eventually wind your way around to the start of the Intermediate Downhill trail. It is really hard to miss as you ride straight under the wooden roll-in at the start of the trail section. If you are feeling adventurous, you can ride this down and it will kick you out just about 200 yards from where you started by the barns. Otherwise, continue following the last mile or so of trail and it is mostly downhill from here. This last downhill section has a tendency to be a bit more gravely. This will dump you out right back at the parking lot.
