      This is a flood plain area, so the trail surface goes from sandy dirt to black dirt. The trail is primarily intermediate and rolling with a few climbs and downhills with lots of wooden boardwalk and other features built in for fun. This trail is only about a year old as of spring 2015, so still having lots of work done to tackle the random sand spots. Kiwanis mountain bike trails are a challenge as much as they are unique and fun.
