      Even though it starts out mellow when you get lose to the edge of the hills it gets very rocky. Keep your eyes peeled every now and then a chunk of trail is completely missing due to erosion. A good bunny hop usually fixes it but if you get it wrong you could get really hurt. As you climb towards the foot of the hill the climb get very technical. At one point you'll wonder is this trail made out of large rocks solely (but in a fun way). You'll also have many deep ravines that shoot right back up so keep your speed if possible. For being in the middle of town this is a series of trails that will keep your skills sharp. The trail set has everything steep technical climbs, fast steep descents with slick rock gravel and anything else to wipe out on. There are places to flow down hill or catch some air. When that is all done it also has a great look out point. I would play higher in the hills in the summer and keep this set for your winter riding pleasures. Keep a mindful eye out for hikers though they are everywhere.
