Lovable Suffer fest. OMG are there hills. Of course you can find a good bit of easy trail, and even put together an easy...ish, loop (from bike entrance, go down to #13 marker post and hang R, then keep taking lefts to go CCW from 13 to 14 to 11 to 12 back to 13.) These are loess hills, and tend to be steep. There's not a lot of technical challenge other then steepness. but there is a tun of trail. I kept thinking I must have gone past a post, but always just had farther to go. (except going up gas pipeline cut out to #20. need to keep eyes pealed for white blaze on R cutting into woods.) Great for a Hard workout, suffers from horses and having but few vistas. mostly just see trees.
