Just rode this trail for the first time. I would consider myself an intermediate rider who hasn't been on a bike in a couple years. This trail is perfect for those starting out and/or starting back in MTBing. All the other reviews and descriptions are pretty accurate. The trail starts a little slow with the roots and switchbacks but then the flow picks up in the middle of the course. Towards the end of the course there are more roots but still a faster flow than the beggining. I did have to stop at some of the downed trees but it was more due to me never riding this trail. The obstacles seemed pretty basic to get over/around. I did not experience the ticks yet but I was obviously the first rider of the day due to the numerous spiderwebs I cleared. Only one fly bite but he ultimately paid with his life.
I was initially unsure where the MTB trail began but it was easy to see once I started down the service road. The trail was very well marked with signs and blue squares/arrows. Even at the road intersections, it was obvious which way to go (usually straight across).
This is a fun simple course that all can enjoy and a great introduction in to mountain Biking.
