These are great, non-technical trails. (Groomed for skating in the winter!) If I feel like cruising, I head for Happy Jack. If I feel like technical I go to Gowdy. The trails are mostly single track, and there's a steep, rocky portion, up on top of Headquarters Trail that I cannot ride. You can make this trail system what you want. Long, short, steep, downhill. I like to start at the bottom of the mountain, at the old ski area and head up to Summit or Brown's Landing. It's all up hill, but it's rarely steep. From up there you have a couple of options. Don't let the names "Death Crotch" or "Mesquito Alley" scare you. There is something for everyone at Happy Jack.
