Description

This is a "go-to" trail to introduce new people to mountain biking. Most of the trail is fast and flowing. The trail has many fun dips and some optional obstacles to challenge you as your confidence grows. There is a very short section of rocks at about the half-way point that you can walk if you're not ready for the challenge yet. Bikes ride clockwise, hikers/runners counter clockwise.
