Great flow trail through beautiful trees, but unfortunately verry popular with hikers - passed close to 100 people on one descent so never got to ride the trail as well as it deserves.

Trail Barney Ford
This is generally a downhill trail. While it's technically a 2-way trail, biking up Barney Ford is generally frowned upon unless it's for a competition. The preferred route up is Juniata!! You will get some not great looks climbing BF.

Short, but one of the highest fun factors in the area. Super fast and flowy with switchbacks and a few jumps. Highly recommended. This trail should be *downhill only.*

Flow trails are meant to be ridden downhill! Please take Juniata up so people don’t have to stop all the time for Uphill riders!

Great trail up and down! I climbed it on the way to sidedoor, and it has great views and is a manageable climb. I also came back down it, and it flows well and has plenty of jumps to keep your smile going and the stoke high!
