The eastern side of this trail is the "Little Kids Loop", a wide, flat curving trail perfect for learning how to ride curves and find lines. The trail meanders and eventually gives way to singletrack and a sudden, short uphill that begins the "Big Kids Loop" a meandering bench-cut trail with many short up and downhill segments and berm-turns built along several small ridges.

 This is the first "new" trail built and has been ridden in nicely. Contains 11 professionally built alternate line features that will test your skills, as intended! The "Little Kids" area is suitable for ALL ages, including toddlers on striders or training wheels. Also a blast for any age/ability to ride the features in this section! The "Big Kids" area is classified Beginner but still presents a challenge to sharpen your skills before tackling the network trails. Four more riding features in this section are sweet but know your limits, especially on the drop!

 This is the only trail not connected to the network of trails and is accessed from the Landing Zone area, just past the start of the Perimeter trail from the main entrance. It is a great warm-up... the Big Kids section is fast and fun!
