A 0.1 miles along Colombo, enter Dean on the left. Dean offers a slight elevation change and some views of the wetlands contained within the park. There can be some drainage issues on the upper section, so be mindful of the trail conditions. You'll exit Dean and cross Colombo again; as you cross Colombo, the trail becomes Albright. After a brief climb and a few rocky features, you'll come to a power line clearing; keep following Albright to the right.
Albright becomes Underwood; take this trail and follow it onto Allmen to catch the entrance to Pappas (left across the drainage). The Pappas Trail is a short climb to a benched cut sidehill over rocky terrain. This is a relatively scenic section with the trail winding above and below an impressively large slab of rock. The Pappas trail is beginner friendly, but it does contain tight singletrack on a steep hillside. If this is not in your comfort zone, continue on Allmen until you catch Gainer instead.
Coming off Pappas you'll cross Allmen and enter directly into Gainer. Gainer features a very short climb to a fun downhill and rock garden. Gainer will exit left onto Newell and returns you to the park trailhead.
