Trail Description
About this trail
Starts on right hand side and is all pure sweet single track. It is technical and has many manmade stunts(rockgardens, log jumps) with bypass at each. The main feature is "THE CRATER". Which is a popular spot to stop and do some jumping and hucking. Opportunity to get sweet air.

Q: Is this a decent trail for a beginner? I've never ridden a singletrack before. Thanks! -drewman87

A: I don't know how old this question is, but from what I've riden of it (had to bail last year when I was there due to rain) it is very beginner friendly. If you run into anything that worries you, you can either ride around it, or walk around it. No shame in that for a new rider, enjoy!

Review: First time riding in over 15 years and first time on a MTB. Trails were easy to follow and quite a few challenges on the easy paths to help build skill. Will ride here often.

Review: We rode this trail 2 weeks in a row and have had a blast! We are far from pro but we know how to have fun :) I like that there are options to some of the harder obstacles - not quite ready for those yet. This will be our go-to trail to build confidence and endurance.

Review: Well marked, not physically taxing, but a lot of mental work, tons of twists and turns? And very scenic

Review: A fun, flowy trail system with plenty of fun technical features. It is not nearly as sandy as many other trails in the area.

Review: One of my favorite local trails. Great for beginners, but has several features in the 'expert section' in the first couple of miles that are challenging. This section can also be completely skipped if you don't feel up to it. No major climbing, but a good amount of scattered obstacles throughout the course, with lots of varied difficulty. Easy to follow as it is a loop.

Review: Awesome trail! Lots of different choices of trails, from beginner to more advanced trails. The trail crosses a 2 way path at many points, so you can make the ride as long as you want. Pump track and skills area near the end of the trails. Very little climbing, but there are some rooty climbs that are more advanced, and a few nice rooty decents.

Review: I liked this trail but I have been biking for years. My wife who has never done a single-track did very well, but I will say this is more of an intermediate trail due to the many switchbacks and roots while pedaling uphill. It is a great spot for trying your technical skills. But this should be a 5th or sixth time trail not a first time. The man-made stuff makes it fun. It is a slower trail due to switch backs and very little elevation.
