This is a great loop, one of my favorites. Very fun, and most of it dries quickly. Thank you to the folks that built it!
There are a few spots that definitely push the limits of a "beginner" loop. But, of course, you can get off your bike and walk the 5 steps. It's an advanced beginner trail, but not intermediate by any means. I wouldn't choose it for someone’s first ride.

Great trail! As a beginner, I was encouraged by the ability to practice some technical skills on this trail without being too challenged. Pretty steady grade without too many dramatic changes in incline. Some parts were rooty but manageable. The trail is well-maintained and well-marked. I enjoyed riding through the windy section about halfway through the trail. Really fun and highly recommended.

Not super difficult but not boring either. Such a fun day on this trail. Great for beginners. Add a bunch of speed and it’s great for more advanced riders to.

Such a fun place to ride. EXTREMELY BUGGY on 7/6/20. Definitely bring the bug spray and have a copy of the trail system with you
