Need to Know
Expect lots of berms on many of the fast turns on steep grades and all the ditch crossings have bridges that need them. The Green Jones Loop is by far the easiest and was designed that way due to the proximity of the trailhead parking. The Orange Highland Trail is intermediate with two long and tall climbs from P-C and B-C. The B-C climb is signed as "extreme" and takes solid riders to pull that grade without putting a foot down.
The Yellow Lowland Trail is a relatively easy, flat flowing trail through the bottoms with some minor climbs around the foot of the ridge. The Red Soden Cemetery Trail is intermediate and features a half-mile flowing downhill from point "I" down to the creek. Probably the longest flow section in our region and a heck of a workout to climb. Not super steep but a steady effort to the top. The Blue Hammond Creek Trail follows the actual Hammond Creek bed. It has a reputation for stunning photo ops of the creek and limestone rocks.
