Review: Fun little trail in the city. They packed a whole lot into this tiny space. Although it is a bit brushy.

Review: Well maintained, the see-saw is nice but that's about it. Although it's a small park, I feel that trail can be re-routed to produce nicer flows. As it is endless low-speed corner

Similar Trail: like a mini Gruber's Grinder

Review: There are a lot of other good trails in the area with a lot more to offer. This is fairly simple urban park singletracks. It was the closest to my hotel so I thought I'd try it out. It's a good place to session corners. A few other features are sprinkled in the well maintained and marked trail. I gave it a slightly higher rating to pull the average up. Giving it credit, I wish this was near where I live because 1) the sandy soil looks like it drains pretty well compared to the clay where I live, which is nice after wet weather and 2) it would be a perfect introduction for the true newbie. The elevation change is not overly challenging but enough to get someone used to getting out of their saddle. There are enough roots and rocks to challenge but not overwhelm. This is a course someone could progress their skills pretty well. I've been trying to convince my wife to join me, and a trail like this would be a perfect training ground.

Review: Good for beginners and fun for intermediate riders. I was scared that this was going to be an overgrown mess but was pleasantly surprised when I got there. The trail is well maintained and the seesaw is rad.

Review: It's got a couple of challenging spots, some good switchbacks. It's in a small space but makes good use of what they got. There's a teeter-totter/seesaw/whatever you want to call it about a mile followed by a dropping switchback that always makes me smile. West side of the trail could use some work, definitely boring in comparison, but you can skip it with a steep drop down the face of the old gravel pit that maybe only an experienced rider should try.

Connect it with the A2 loop and it makes for a nice ride (10 miles of singletrack, at least). The hardest part is getting a local to tell you how to find it!
