Family Friendly Playgrounds, fire pits, shelters for rent, parts of the trail that are beginner friendly. Occassional family friendly park events.
The four-foot wide, dirt trail starts with a fairly immediate uphill climb, so the "beginner trail" on the map is just an alternative starting point that provides newer riders a chance to get warmed up some before tackling the climb. There is no separate trail for beginners ... just a different recommended starting point.
NIMBA does a great job keeping the trail edges trimmed and cleared of fallen limbs or trees. I would say it is 70% tight and twisty and 30% smooth and fast. As for obstacles and features, there really are none worth mentioning ... it's pretty much a beginner track with some climbs, twists, and turns.
This trail typically dries out faster than other local trails after a rain.

The park has an entrance fee / annual pass that you can buy, although 90% of the time the park is open with no fees required. The fee is only charged on days when an attendant is manning the park entrance. If there is an event going on, then it is likely someone will be manning the entrance and collecting the entrance fee. Otherwise riders will find a sign reading "No Fee Today."
