The first part of the trail is flat for nearly a mile but it is fairly senic, after that you start getting on to the skill hills and near an area that looks basically like sand dunes. Some nice views and rolling terrain. This doesn't get too technical but some of the climbs can be very very long. A good test for a beginner but nothing unenjoyable. Some nice winding single track with about 20% dual track as well. Very nice place to ride, doesn't have too many roots, but it does have some nice hills (i mean its on a ski hill).
recomended route...? check out the senic overlook
