A solid intermediate course when considering entry/exit trails close to the lake and short, steep inclines. You will have to dismount a couple of times if you do not have your line set up due to rooty surface on the climbs. Webs are like guitar strings out here; one giant, fat spider rappelled off my helmet brim after he caked me with his stringy fortress. Once you get to the "roller-coaster", groomed trail it is a blast! Several rolling switchbacks and grippy turns. There is a lot of trash out at the "BMX" section with a couple of launches, didn't have a bag to haul out the garbage. Overall, needs some attention, but fun to explore. Primary trail is marked with pink ribbons on the trees, but easy to get lost if you don't hug the lake because of several shoot-outs leading to private land or dead ends. It's possible to do a loop around the lake if you exit out of the back of the hospital parking area.
