    Overall, it is a flowy nice trail for beginners. But avoid blue trail if you are a beginner because there are some steep inclines and declines in which you may have to walk to not go to the hospital.

    Beginner/moderate trail. It is a nice trail and overall well maintained. It is mostly flat except on the blue trail where there are some steep inclines.

    This trail system is a blast to ride! The blue/orange/red loop is the longest loop all the way around, with some fast flat sections as well as a couple steep climbs and descents on the blue side. The trails in the middle have great flow and are well maintained. There are some tiny sections which are overgrown, but they're easy to avoid. There are some small features in the woods as well, such as bridges and jumps.

    Generally a very easy trail, but there are a few sections that are a bit challenging.
