    From the directions, this is to Peebles Island. Well maintained, mostly hiking, trails. Probably too short for most folks to travel to, but if you're close its worth it.

    A few short steep hills, lots of tricky tree roots and trails that run right along steep cliffs. I still list it at beginner though. New riders will be challenged, but. I don't think it's much for more experienced.

    To note, its very scenic. A couple of waterfalls, some old cars abandoned in the woods to find. (1950's) and lots of deer.
