My go to for a great workout since there is no respite at this park. Very rooty and tight so your core is almost always engaged and if you're not careful, you'll be on the deck before you know it...focus is pretty important there. The fun to be had is simply by building your own loop and time trialing weekly. I will say that I have taken novice riders here and they don't do very well here. (I ruined my son here and a few others, it's not beginner)
My preferred route is about 6 miles and includes the following: Trailhead 1/ left on Grape Vine/ left on Steve's Bowl-a-Rama/ right to Cyclone/ cross fire road to Lower Piney/ left and cross fire road to Outback/ left on Tom Cat to cross fire road to Upper Piney/ right onto Ivy Ridge/ cross fire road onto Bottom Out/ past Trail Head 2 and left on Roller Coaster/ straight into Slick Rock then Grape Vine/ out at the Trail Head 1 greenway....back to the red barn parking area.
The trail has gotten a lot of attention from GLOCK and others lately so the there's been some minor changes to trail routes (reclamation) but also some great grooming work done as well.

Falling Creek, but FC is longer with areas of respite.
