It definetly is a valley, lots of altitude. Rocky, rooty and fast. Switchbacks, it has all types of terrain, not for the beginner at heart. Morning Choice trail is nice and not too technical. Ridge Trail is what it means, ridge with a lot of rocks. Soapstone, Bull Run trails are awesome and the one that I can't remember the name is also pretty good. ENJOY.
