This is a beautiful trail through the Ozarks. It is rugged and rocky in many areas, especially on the north loop, and as a beginning mountain biker, I would say that the south loop is a beginner trail with a really fun stream bed crossing, and the north loop is an advanced trail because of the terrain, narrow slopes, and rock gardens. As a beginner, I made it through the north loop with a couple places where I had to walk, but it was good exposure to a more challenging trail. The feeder trail which goes from the trailhead parking lot seemed to be an intermediate trail with rocks, roots, and some challenging, curvy stream crossings. This time of year, it was difficult to see the trail because of the leaves, and the trail tags on the trees are helpful. It is a great place to be out in the woods with the ability to choose from three types of trails all in one area. No air bridges, trail varies in width.
