Description

Mostly flat, nothing technical. There were 2-3 small-ish hills. I'm a newbie so I had to walk the bike up parts of it. The first hill going in (therefore the last hill going out) are the toughest ones throughout the route. Otherwise, a fun ride.

This would be an amazing spot in the spring when the wildflowers return.

Best part of the trail was this gentle forested singletrack that went on for quite a ways.

The first 0.9 mi has three short climbs, but the reward is several miles of fun singletrack around the lake. I plan to come back and do the Oak Co… 3.8mi — 12h 30m

Fun up and down trail that can be combined with other loops in the area. For for all levels but also great for beginners and families. 34mi — 4h 00m
