Don't get bored yet!! This trail has more to offer than you think.
A lot of the reviews on here are fairly accurate except their are actually a few trails that are off the beaten path that a lot of noobs have yet to discover. For example, on the "Advanced Trail" past the 2nd creek crossing, take a sharp right up the rocks and bunny hop over the fallen tree. Take a left and you'll see an alternate very demanding incline up the hill. This will take you to the top of the hill close to where the top of the granite downhill is. Also, after crossing the main creek crossing, take a right up the hill and rock garden and before taking a left towards the 2nd creek crossing, take a right up the hill. You will see granite and moss to the left. Take this uphill to the top and enjoy a fast but rough downhill back to where you started.
Look for Harbins Half Marathon video on YouTube as well. There is a whole other 6-7 miles of trail on the West side that includes a few bridges that connects you to the East side of the trail.
Combining these trails together can get you up to 23 miles of ride time if you loop it right.
Explore a little and you will find even more of these hidden gems. Most of which are not for beginners but if you are up for an adventure and a new challenge, consider these next time you are here.
