    This is one of the best designed trails you ll come across. Dont get hung up on how its rated easy i intermediate and expert. This place has insane flow, is meticulous maintained, and is a blast to just ride. The "expert" loop has some fun little rocks and other features that are easier one way and harder the other. Worth the ride.

    Fun trail cut through the woods. Kudos to the local MTB assoc and students that built it. The elevation change is nice without a lot of climbing difficulty. Only rode part of the beginner loop and intermediate as I was pressed for time. Can't wait to get back oit there.

    Really nice trail building. The beginner and intermediate loops flow nicely with bigger berms and more opportunities for air on the intermediate loop. The advanced loop has some rock and wood features and what seemed like a narrower trail tread. Nothing crazy difficult on the advanced loop but I can see how it could challenge intermediates.

    A hand-built trail that uses the property and elevation changes well. The flow is very good, and most tighter corners feature berms to allow speed to be preserved. The intermediate loop has some spots where one can catch a bit of air, and it also contains several small rock features. All in all a fun but short loop, but more trail is being built.

    This is a fun trail. Loops have been connected, I think it's about 6.2miles. No serious climbs, it's cut nicely through trees area. Great for Beginners and great for the Advanced Rider looking to get some speed without too much work. Trail rides both ways, so you can finish, turn around & ride opposite direction, giving an entirely different perspective while doubling distance. Fun. I give it a four star, do it.

    3 mile loop trail that flows fairly well; Can be ridden in either direction. Looks like some of the trail system is newer than others. Trail meanders through a school forest - compacted into a smaller area.
