Q: could a beginner handle this trail? -n25
A: Yes. The singletrack is tame for experienced riders but would be challenging for a beginner without being dangerous. There are some more open sections of double-track that you can get warmed up on and then move onto the singletrack as you feel comfortable.
A: Yes, a beginner could handle the yellow trail. I am in the beginner phase and I did the yellow trail a few weeks ago without any problem, though, I didn't do the loops, just the out and back to the falls.
