Mountain Biking Hayes trail

Filled with steep climbing and tight switch backs, bring your best pair of lungs for this journey. There is a lot of climbing on the out leg of this trail but on the journey back you are definitley rewarded for your previous work!

    This is a very unique trail that makes good use of the terrain available. Can be a lung buster going up and a white knuckler around the turns on the way down. A lot of fun.

    No real obstacles but I label this advanced due to the steep climb to the top and the extremely tight switchbacks. This is a lolly pop out and back trail toward the back of the park so it is a tough climb to the top and some tight switchbacks. But you are rewarded when you finish the lolly pop when you come back down and hit all of the rollers at the bottom!
