“A fun, fast, beginner-friendly trail with two main loops and tons of well-made berms.”— Vinnie Connors
Family Friendly This is a very short and easy trail that does not require much climbing and can be lapped over and over.
After passing the trail kiosk for the second time, stay on the left side of the road and continue to the Main Parking Lot / Flow Loop Connector on the left to access the Flow Loop. This connector has tons of roots and is probably the most challenging part of the trail system.
After crossing the wooden bridge that spans a small creek, stay right to begin the Flow Loop. It starts with a very easy half-mile climb that leads to where the fun begins. The last half mile of the Flow Loop is a fast and flowy section that weaves its way through the trees over many rollers and a few small jumps to end with a few switchback berms that allow you to keep up a high rate of speed.
After the last switchback berm, take the right fork at the intersection with Tech Loop. Tech Loop, the newest addition to the trail system which opened in late 2018, is the most challenging and most fun section of trail. Follow the loop in the clockwise direction for about three quarters of a mile until the trail connects back to the Flow Loop near the bridge at the intersection with Main Parking Lot / Flow Loop Connector.
At nearly the three-mile mark, after crossing the bridge over the creek for a second time, take the Main Parking Lot / Flow Loop Connector option on the left and follow the trail back to the parking lot to conclude the ride.
