Trail FloJo
nice and smooth ride down, well constructed turns with decent flow. Trail should be green though.

Trail FloJo
It is a green to riders that know how to ride. To a beginner or an intermediate that is still learning the sharper turns and wood work near the entrance can be harder to ride so it is classified as a blue

Trail Crosscut
At the start of Crosscut (near Flojo) there is an unmarked, unofficial locals shooting range against a hill that is below the trail. A few people were there shooting as I rode by. Pretty alarming to say the least as this is in bounds in the recreation area. I'm sure that they are safe and smart about it, but it still felt sketchy.
Otherwise these trails are awesome.
