      Horse Hill is a fantastic riding area filled with purpose built trails by bikers with a keen eye for a good time. There's the more mellow doubletrack of the Loop trail, all the way to the steep, nigh impossible, short suffering climbs of East Slope and Horse Hill Summit. Outer Ledges and Twister are some of the best; fun both down and up. If you're ambitious you can head across the way to Pipeline for a really great downhill with some features and berms, down to GPC 1&2, and hit up the Quarry trail for the way back. Enjoy
