“Fun and fast”— Kel W
Head onto the White Blaze/Denny's Trail (near Pie Traynor) for a little fast and flow-y fun. From there, you go to the left to get onto the White/Orange Dot trail. When the trails intersect, stay straight-ish to hit the White/Brown Dot Trail. Follow the trail until you get to the lollipop where there are some fun rollers, logs, and jumps that aren't too intimidating.
After you do the lollipop loop a few times (you should because it's fun!), stay straight to get onto the White Blaze again. This is fairly flat, and I believe there is a pretty gnarly log obstacle blocking this path. It looks like someone recently cut it to make it cross-able by bike, but as a beginner, it was too high and technical for me. Not a big deal to jump off your bike and step over.
While you continue onto White Blaze (Rocky Dell) trail, there is a series of large flat rocks to your left. This is a really good place to practice some wheel lifts. If the whole obstacle is too much, you can practice jumping on the second half of the rock, which has a little bit of a flatter surface.
As you continue, you'll get onto the Rachel Carson Trail (North Park Segment) for a short but gnarly hill climb that is filled with roots and a small crick crossing (very small—it might even be more of a semi-permanent puddle). You then get onto the Koto Buki Connector Trail for some mild uphill, roots, and rocks.
You can stay on the Koto Buki Connector Trail (I think it was maybe too muddy at the time), or you can ride on Babcock to access the Koto Buki Trail. This trail, for the most part, is downhill, fast, and fun. There are one or two small logs and a handful of berms to ride. Exit the trail near Ingomar Road.
If you parked at Pro Bike, be careful crossing the road. If you parked near the Pie Traynor lots, have fun climbing back to your car!
