Expertly-built, silky-smooth trail with deceptive variety, features, and elevation.

Overview

Family Friendly: Accessible, relatively easy trails.
Dogs: Leashed

Description

The trail begins innocently enough through some tall pines. You might see an old riding lawn mower on the right - a sign that this trail is well maintained. Before long, you'll find yourself on a stacked loop trail generally heading south. While the loops are short, they're not tight offering a nice flow to the trail. Your friend could be 50' behind you and yet right beside you as you wind your way through the maze.

The loop begins to open up the further south (and downhill you go). Once you hit the southernmost point, it straightens out somewhat. That means that what seems like the half-way point is really about two-thirds of the way to the finish.

As you head back north, you'll duck in and around some dense brush, but the builders have done an excellent job of tunneling through. You'll come to a winding bridge that, while it looks somewhat intimidating (and undoubtedly is if it's slick), can be ridden relatively straight through. For a little more adrenaline, push it a bit and let the angles keep you flowing.

You'll exit to a prairie before heading straight up to the trailhead.

Dry - The descriptions of the trails are confusing, the author appears to have confused north and south directions. I believe someone changed the names to be the correct trail without fixing the descriptions . Also the trails are one way and the north trail is shown and described (labeled south trail description) in the wrong direction. Sorry for the confusion, I hope to resolve it soon.
