    Although most of this trail network is solid green, there's some swoopy fun segments to be had, and there's a couple solid blue spots on the Dragonfly Trail. Dragonfly is definitely the best of the network, and it's only a few miles. There's enough more to get in plenty of mileage, but it's mostly less entertaining. A nice network close to town.

    Some of this trail system contained some really nice singletrack. Other parts were really sandy. The petroglyph on the Dragonfly Trail was pretty neat. Mostly green (easy) trails with a very few slightly blue sections thrown in.
