      Heads up this is an extensive XC-style park in the piedmont style with almost no downhill or trail style features. It has promise, but as-is, it's not a serious draw for real mountain riders - no true downhill runs, insane number of switchbacks with undersized berms, no tabletops, skinnies or other features and what look like good drops on the map are mazes of swoopy up & downs of 20-30 vertical feet that leave you wondering when it'll open up so you can rip. Even for XC style there are far too many switchbacks crammed into areas with poor flow & constant gear changes vs. fewer well made with strong flow & faster, flowy speeds. The few drops you will find are on the eastern Rhodo Coaster section (mm 2.75 to 3 miles), a few parts of the Flaming Azalea trail or some of Fain Espresso (which is not mapped & seems to just peter out at the NW boundary).

      With some more work, this park could be great for all riders, but as of Oct 2020, there's not a single true downhill here out of miles & miles of trails - adding several throughout would greatly improve the site. Even for XC style its a bit overly machined - maybe fun for XC style, but nothing to offer mountain riders looking to pummel some good downhills at full throttle.

      Pros: easy ups & nothing too big; family / kid friendly; uncrowded; machine-built & main access trails areas are wide & clear

      Cons: no downhills; no features (berms, tables, skinnies); natural road-cut berms are overgrown with saplings; trails feel crampy w/ poor flow, way too many switchbacks and far too much up/down and gear changing required any given 100-200 ft sections even in the "downhills" areas.
