Description

The Beginner Trail is just over a mile long with a tight and twisty singletrack trail that starts out easy but gets to be a little bit much for beginners in the middle. This one-way trail starts from the north side of the gravel parking area where there is a sign and a map at the trailhead. The trail is well marked with white signs until it splits around the skills area where an unmarked turn is required to keep on the loop. This short route is very easy at first, but some narrow and very rooty sections later make it less-friendly for newer riders. It is mostly a connector for the Intermediate Trail and Advanced Loop.

Took my teenage son who is just getting into mountain biking and the beginner loop at some points required him to walk.
