“A run through a not commonly ridden area.”— Vance Fast
As you climb towards the foot of the hill, the climb get very technical. At one point, you'll wonder if this trail is made out of large rocks solely (but in a fun way). You'll also have many deep ravines that shoot right back up so keep your speed if possible. For being in the middle of town, this is a series of trails that will keep your skills sharp.
The trail set has everything; steep, technical climbs, fast, steep descents with slick rock gravel and anything else to wipe out on. There are places to flow downhill or catch some air. When that is all done, it also has a great lookout point. I would play higher in the hills in the summer and keep this set for your winter riding pleasures. Keep a mindful eye out for hikers as they are everywhere.
