Trail Description
About this trail
The trail consists of a series of switch backs gradually working the way down hill. If ridden counter clockwise (preferred), the first section from the parking area includes a rock garden to give those sidewalls some grief. The trail north of Corps Road offers a view of the lake and a nice rocky climb. The trail flows nicely and is fun to ride. I would rate it as a beginners if it were not for the rocky sections.

Q: Which trails would be the best trails for beginners? Less technical? -Totsyo

A: I'd say Orange and Blue which are North of road across from main TH on West end. Most of it is pretty approachable except yellow is a bit strenuous and Green has a jump that is advanced but has bypass.

Review: Several loops identified by different colors. Each has it share of rocks, climbs and DHs, all adding up to fun. White loop has views of the lake and maybe more flow than the others. Lots of entertainment without discouragement.

Review: Really fun trail. Great lake views. Nothing too technical, but some fun downhill flow with nice berms and nice rock gardens and decent climbs to provide some challenge.

Review: Great trail system. Very well maintained. Good climbs for some decent cardio and rewarding fast flowy down hills. Ridden several times and rarely saw another rider.

Review: Nice trail system. Is as others have stated. Blue and Orange best ridden counterclockwise, others either direction. There is also a new flow trail ( White trail) it connects off the blue trail near the orange/ junction.

Review: Great trail, the green and yellow loops have the bigger climbs, but still flowy. We had so much fun, wife and I went back to ride the orange and blue loops.
All intermediate, can be ridden by better beginners.
Highly recommended.
