“A fun green trail loop through Hampton Hills Metropark.”

Family Friendly: Fun for more experienced riders, yet challenging enough for beginners.
Dogs: No Dogs
Take the Green Trail to the right and head down the short two-way section. This section is on gravel, which is a little sketchy. Take a right and there is a winding wooden skill land bridge. Follow the curve left and reach the first actual bridge. Head up an incline and cross the second bridge, which is curvy.
After the bridge is a climb with some right turns, the last of which is a banked turn. A left banked-ish turn follows, and the climb continues on until the third bridge. The climb continues, entering the forest and ending at a choice between intermediate to the left and green to the right. Going left takes you down two banked turns, the first to the left and the second to the right.
After a descent, there is a climb which culminates in a hairpin turn right. Follow the climb, then take a left. Watch the gravel here. The trail goes up and down for a while, crosses another bridge, continues winding while going up and down and crosses a dirt road. You then head into the forest for some mildly banked turns, cross another bridge, then a climb with some nice jump-turns culminating in 3 "jumps" in a line. Follow the trail until you hit gravel, then a right turn followed by the next bridge.
Follow the trail as it undulates, crossing a few bridges, one after a rather tight hairpin turn to the right on gravel. Keep following the trail until it spits you out where you went left last time. Take the right path and follow the ups and downs of the gravel trail, with quite a few fun turns dodging trees until you exit back at the spot you first started from.
