Fomba trails are good fun. Some are more technical (Fire Line, Long Trail) than others. All the trails are very twisty and turny. They maximize the space they use but because of this, most of the trails lack good flow. In most cases, as soon as you get up a good pace, there is a hairpin turn to shut your speed down. Some might find this enjoyable. I do not. The best trail is the Woodpecker. It is smooth and generally pretty fast and flowy. I ride woodpecker to hemlock, then I turn around and ride them in reverse. Not a long ride, but the most fun. Red Pine and Sampler are the easiest for an introduction to singletrack riding. Moose Track, Fisher Cat and Deer Run are more technical, but easier than Fire Line or Long Trail.
