An easy meander around hayfields. One extended climb to the top of of mile-long field. Alternatively, take Picnic after Mtn View Loop to ascend in the shade on some mixed single/doubletrack. Rest at the picnic table and enjoy the view before swooping down Hayride. One section of Home Again (between the long boardwalk and a small parking lot) has some turns that may be challenging to beginners. They are given the option to follow Sky Hawk Lane and Mountainside Drive around that section.

Not sure where the flow is. This is more of a rocky doubletrack trail that leads into a winding field above the parking lot.

This trail is a mowed path going around a field.

This entire trail system is terrible for bikes (great for hiking). Half of it is just a lawn mowed path through a field. The other half is technical and not at all in a fun way. Don’t waste your time.
