I love this trail. Just rode it after a couple years off, and forgot how much fun it is. When you were a kid and wanted to go fast and ride curves like a BMX track, and do some jumps, and bomb down some hills, there was never a place to do that all in one spot. This course let's you do all of that. It is not a technical juggernaut, or have goat-hill climbs for fitness junkies... but it challenges you to take the right line and ride it fast... not just ride it. Get the lines right and keep momentum, and you can burn through it, but if you are dragging the brakes downhill or missing the apexes, you will want to come back and hit that sweet line through those tough spots. There are log piles and small rock gardens... but there is almost always an escapement for newer riders. There are plenty of fitness paths around, and I'm not knocking them at all, but I ride because it's fun, and for where we live, this is a great course.
