The trails at SRC are still a work in progress. Lots of twisty, right single track with some open clearing and double track as well. The distance has increased to a 6 mile loop and now avoids having to ride along Bob Wallace on the sidewalk thanks to the NICA group. Signage is weak at best and the trails need to be designated to a specific direction to avoid collisions on the narrow twisty single track ( suggest an alternating schedule based on day of the week). Come prepared to pedal. It is flat with lots of tight speed sapping turns. My gps app shows that the trails is 78% flat, 12% uphill and 10% downhill. The climbs average 6% grade with a max of 11% and the downs average 6% with a max of 9%. There are no restroom or changing facilities for bikers o come ready to ride. This trail is on very low ground and it tends to hold water for days after a rain. Also be prepared to stop for space camp/aviation challenge kids during the summer.
