Review: First time here and loved it. Definitely will be back to explore more. Plenty for all levels of rider. Intermediate riding and most obstacles were easily avoided or walked around. Maybe on rock garden and plenty or berms and flow! I could easily do several laps and spend a day here. Just moved to the area and this is about 45 minutes from home, but this will definitely be one of my go to trails.

Review: This trail is a very flowy and fast. There are plenty of features, natural and built to keep things interesting. Somehow the trail builders were able to keep you in the "sweet spot" of the Main Loop so as to make it feel like you were always pointed downhill. I highly recommend this trails system.

Review: This trail has a great mix. Short moderate climbs, short down hills, Switchbacks, small jumps, and berms. There are a few obstacles that are not to crazy (not sure why they are diamond). You can ride around them if you are not comfortable riding them. One way traffic. May run into a few hikers with dogs.

Review: Not very hard but not too easy, just a whole lot of fun! There's no real climbing and a lot of fast, flowy sections with some jumps, small drops, and a few wooden obstacles thrown in. Not to say that it's all fast and smooth. There are plenty of rooty areas and some fun little rock gardens as well. All in all, Sherman is a very well laid out and maintained trail that is tame enough for a beginner yet still has something to offer a more seasoned rider.
