To get started, park in the cul-de-sac near the daycare and proceed up the hill to the trailhead to look over the map. Once you're ready to proceed, head into the woods and you'll notice some manmade features on the left. Head past the wooden coaster skinny. The Beginner Loop begins to the left, and the end of that trail is just a little ways up the hill.
Continue up the steep slope and take the sharp left back into the woods. From here, you'll soon have two choices - left or right. A right shortcuts around three of the best miles out of the course, but avoids a more technical section (left).
If you proceed to the left as mapped, you'll encounter a rugged off-camber section that provides a challenge and a good view. Roughly 1.5 total miles into your ride (assuming you took a left at the fork before), you'll now encounter a choice to either continue on the main trail or enter the Black Loop (indicated by a sign). The black section beginning here is more technical yet, providing a challenging scamper across several off-camber rock sections with technical climbs and descents.
In either case, the two trails (black and blue) come back together a ways down the blue trail beyond the split. From here and for the next few miles, the roots are fewer and more spaced out so your speed can really start to pick up. The trail meanders through the woods and even down the edge of a cornfield until it jumps back down to where you had the option to avoid the more challenging section about a mile into your ride. (See above where I mentioned cutting the best three miles out of the course).
Continue left here at the fork and enter the "Hurt Locker" filled with roots and rocks. From here on, you won't have many trail splits but have fun and use some caution on your first trip through! It really flows!
