Get your pass and map at the HQs and park at the Trailhead Equestrian Camp Area. From there even beginners won't have much problem on Wilderness Trail (1), but as you get closer to Ice Cream Hill leave it to those with more experience as the terrain gets a bit more rocky and loose. Many spots on Spring Branch & Spring Run (6 & 6a) will require you to carry your bike, but that's part of MTBin'. The multiple low water crossings are fun and the trails over-all are a nice challenge for all levels.
note: full suspension is a definite benefit here
