Best if ridden South to North. Trail gets progressively easier the further north you go. Great downhill rock garden on south end.

Thoughts on naming this section "Three Kings" or "Three Wise Men" as a nod to the features on this section of trail?

Some pretty rocky sections with jagged limestone and a few tight turns. Make sure you take a good line and stay back in the saddle.

This trail, including several short offshoots, is underrated. You can create your own loops which can be technical or flowy. Upon first ride, it’s a cool little trail. When you start really exploring the area there are so many gems that are a blast to ride

Has a couple of jumps that someone's been working on. Pretty nice but hard to get much speed up to them. Bmx would do pretty well though and maybe get some air.
