Description

This trail is a multi use trail. Didn't see too many people walking the trail when I went. The trail is a loop that can be biked in either direction. One direction will give you smooth uphills and technical downills while the other direction gives you technical climbs and smooth downhills.

The technical climbs parts are steep with very large roots making it difficult. There are also wooden bridges to cross along the trail that do not have a ramp to roll over. These bridges have a 1 foot step that you'll need to bunny hop over or get off your bike and lift it up in order to cross. One bridge is not rideable(see picture).

The trail has two areas that lead you to the main road for a brief period and then puts you back onto the actual trail again. The trail is marked with blue paint or wooden signs with a blue mark.

There are a few logs as well, but these have a little dirt ramps to make getting over a little easier. About a quarter mile of the trail is on the park side which is open area with gravel for the trail. There are pavilions and bathrooms as well.
