Great sampling of what Arcadia Dunes has to offer: flowy singletrack, punchy climbs, fast downhills. Can be ridden in either direction - feels a bit different either way. Nothing too technical on this trail - rated blue because the number of punchy climbs and descents will

A bit Sandy in spots, but as the name and regions suggests, it’s at the dunes. Very fun with short punchy climbs and descents the whole ride. Could maybe benefit from a direction schedule like some of the other trails in the area.
