This is a short intermediate trail that has a few rock gardens and lots of roots. The trail flows nicely and you can pick up some speed in some places. Not much in the way of climbing but you can still get a good burn.

    Great intermediate trail near the main TH. Roots and rocks make this a fun ride. Good connector for the more advanced trails in the system.

    Used this trail has a way of just getting across to the more difficult trails. Easy ride.

    This was the first trail my family hit after the entry into the trail system. It has a few small root and rock technicals, but my wife is a beginner and she had no problems traversing it. This is a nice warmup for anyone.

    A good trail to ride when making the jump from the yellow trails. A few more rocks, roots, turns and mounds to complete your graduation! Fun ride that will help a beginner's confidence.

    Went riding here with coworkers....really liked this trail. Great blue trail for those of us who like a little challenge but want to avoid red trails.

    A short but sweet trail in Santos. There are a couple of rock gardens and roots to contend with that add to the appeal of the trail. Nice singletrack that is one of my favorites in Santos.
