Did this as a loop from Seneca Ridge Trail for well over 20 miles stating at Black Rock Mill. I was pleasantly surprised by the complexity and relatively technical features provided by the trail. At points, it is wide and flowy, but then you deal with trees downed by beavers, root gardens on a 10% incline, a few decent rock gardens too, and very little down time. You are either climbing or pedaling along a brief flat section. There are not many hills. And if the main trail is too little for you, head off on Mink Hallow or Long Draft Trails towards Seneca Ridge, you will not be dissapointed. Maybe try and ride the main loop on off days (I hit it on a Friday day off and encountered only a few people) as I'm sure it gets a great deal of use.
