      Take a spirited ride on flowing, gravel based, single track bordered by glacier deposited boulders. Through old farmland that's transitioned to wild flower filled meadows. Between "Skinny's" formed by small trees, large trees, and smooth rocks. In Oak and Maple filled ridge line woods, where the old trees have fallen, and become ride on and over obstacles. Over bridged babbling creeks, ladder bridged wet areas, board walked sand pits, and the occasional old fence row rock garden.
