    Reviewing The Whoops:

    Fun trail to ride. You do have to pay close attention to the route and mileage so you stay on the right path. While I was riding there was actually someone remarking the trail and it really helped when I rode where he had already marked. As far as the trail is concerned it is really a easy nontechnical trail but is a lot of fun. Very smooth and has good flow. Many other trails to explore around here too just not enough time or air left in the tire after this ride.

    Have not been through it all but so far trails are well packed and somewhat easy to moderate

    Snowy/Muddy. Would be a good fat bike trail until it dries out this spring.

    Reviewing The Whoops:

    As stated in the description this is a loop in a much larger system. Rode 20 miles, and maybe hit a 3rd of the trails. Trails are like a giant buffed pump track. Mostly rolling single track with only one long climb. Some of the trails are used by motto's (ATV are not allowed) making for even bigger whoops and bermed turns. Overall a very fast fun trail. Trail is suitable for beginners, ride it fast, and it becomes a whole different animal.
