Multi-use trail in a wooded setting. Avoid after rain--give these trails some time to dry out.

    The other descriptions are right, very, very flat and very twisty. I will add the following: There is a map box at the trail head, there are enough junctions and shortcuts that it would be easy to get confused. I went on a fat bike when it was frozen. Based on the terrain and vegitation, it stays wet in the spring for a long time. However, if you are interested in getting a less physically active person to join you in Mountain biking, this is a great spot. It is well maintained, never far from a road (if someone needs to bail), wide and flat. Great Newbie material.

    This trail is very easy. Almost all flat single track. Around 5 miles. I combined this trail with Rolling Hills, they are about a mile apart. Not much to say about this trail except the severe lack of signage. I got lost a few times. They tried to spray paint some stuff. I just feel that is very unnatural and took away from the beauty. I would love to donate some signs to this trail.

    Smooth trail with a few obstacles. Mostly flat, but can be good practice for turning technique. I've heard of a connector trail to rolling hills park, but could not find it anywhere.

    We'll kept, smooth, fun ride. Any skill level can enjoy this mostly flat single track. It does have a few log piles and bridges. Nothing crazy but an introduction for newer riders.

    Not a bad trail to get out for a good half hour and hustle back home before anyone knew you were gone. This trail does not seem to be ridden often. Trail is mainly worn out grass and lots of leafy slippery twists and turns although well maintained.
