    I'd call this an intermediate trail because of how tight/twisty it is between the trees and your likelihood of clipping a tree. There is not much elevation change, and most of it is smooth. It's a loop system with Oak Hill 3 being the outermost loop (with an add on out and back Oak Hill 4 section that sometimes isn't well maintained, but has the best downhill curve where you could fly into the river if you don't control it!) It's a nice urban trail, sometimes with a couple hikers. It does not dry out well, so avoid after rain. You can link it to the unofficial Tosa connector MTB trail that goes to Hoyt Park by taking the parkway across Hwy 100 and jumping onto the connector trail.

    liked the course, not too hard, but I would say better than a beginner course. Enjoyed it!

    The trail is great for a short 30-45 minute ride after work or to unwind. It routinely gets very muddy and flooded after rain. A few more wooden tracks in the chronically muddy areas would be fantastic.

    Fun trails. Not too intense of a work out. not much climbing to be found because these trails are practically in the city.

    This trail is great for a quick after-work ride to unwind. The short, low-grade climbs and descents let you pick up the pace, and the little creek crossings let you cool down. This is a very pretty, mellow trail.

    Fun twisty singletrack with a couple stream crossings, bridges, small logs and short climbs. Well marked and fun! Runs along the river and is scenic.
