I've never ridden outside of Columbia and I'm a beginner. I like this trail because it has good amounts of elevation and I feel like the trail is more compact, flowly, and less rooty than a lot of the trails at Rockbridge. I feel like it's a workout but I find the downhill sections the most enjoyable in Columbia. I usually ride several times and vary the white connector, skills course, and what we call "bonus loop", or the first .75 miles of the trail to vary my ride so it doesn't get redundant. It's my favorite spot, usually free of hikers or other bikers, you just have to get past the occasional atv and fairly consistent gun fire from the nearby range.
