    Easy ride along the river, and if you don't want anything challenging. There are a few unmarked splits along the trail, which can be very confusing. This trail also connects to the Al Foster trail, if you can eventually figure out how to find it. All in all, a nice ride through the woods, bugs and all. The most challenging part is the very beginning (river scene trail area), and all the people walking along some of the blind spots. Can get very crowded, esp. on a nice weekend.

    A little more advanced then river scene but not by much. if you are getting bored and don't want to step up to the more advanced trial this would be your next step. There is a little more elevation change to this trail and some tighter turns. you can also use this to connect Al Foster trail and Cedar bluff trails.
