A BLAST!!!!! Nice flowy trails, most of which I would consider beginner to low intermediate. The blue trail that starts at Croom-Nobleton is my favorite. For the first 10 miles you get some nice, fast, smooth singletrack with some light climbs and descents. Nothing technical except for a couple small sections at around 2 miles and a couple small climbs around 5 or 6 miles(I think). At about 9 miles or so you get Drunken Monkey, which is a more advanced section that can be avoided if you didn't want to take it. BUT YOU SHOULD TAKE IT! It's awesome! Nice climbs and descents more akin to what you might find in Balm Boyette trails rather than rocky, rooty trails like Santos. Between the 10 and 14 mile markers is my absolute favorite section! BEAUTIFUL scenery with some more advanced riding. Again, it's very flowy and you can hit it with some speed. Not toooo rocky or rooty. A couple sections with serious consequences for falling off the side(30 foot drops). Also, there is a bmx track in that section that's fun. When you find yourself just before Tired Hole, take the trail to the left to get to the track.... Over 50 miles of riding at Croom! Yet, it is still a little known gem. I frequent as often as I can. Shred, rinse, repeat!
