This beginner-level loop starts on the main "Bert Flinn Loop Trail" which takes riders through Bert Flinn Park to the entrance of "Black Dog", a cross-country trail.

"Black Dog" takes riders back toward the park entrance, where they will exit Black Dog via the "Black Dog Connector" and then follow the "Off-leash Side Trail" to the west. Connecting to the "Bert Flinn Loop Trail" once again.

Following the Bert Flinn Loop Trail back towards the entrance of "Black Dog", riders will turn on to "Jo-Jo Finn's Green Spectacles". This flow trail provides riders with bermed corners and several easy features and can be ridden in either direction.

Exiting "Jo-Jo Finn's", riders will continue downhill on "Straz-Line 2" which includes larger rollable features with optional lines and introduces the beginner rider to intermediate features. This trail exists on to "Straz-Line 1" which includes additional blue features, with ride-around options. Features include a long log ride, a couple of sets of skinnies, a large A-frame ramp, an elevated log ride, and a drop feature with an air-drop or rollable drop option.

"Starz-Line 1" exits on to a path that leads to the "Off Leash Area" which riders can follow back to the entrance. (Riders may also go back to the start of "Black Dog" and return to the entrance that way).
