Drummer Hill is not the most beginner friendly set of trails. The Stonewall farm trails may be a better starting point if you're brand new to the sport.

This loop will take you around 1.5hrs depending on how hard you go. It'll give you a good idea of the Drummer Hill trail network. This is a great loop for any intermediate to advanced level riders. The ideal bike for this ride would be a 120-150mm trail bike. That being said, you can definitely get by with a Hardtail or rigid. There are no mandatory drops, but there are plenty of technical lines all over the place.

Variations:
Shorter Loop: Once you get to the end of the Exit 1 trail, take 48T (48 Turns) over far side. (~1hr)
Longer Loop: When 2/3rds done with Far Side, climb up 48T, to old Gilsum rd, and take Drop and Chute back to Far side. (~2hrs)

      yesterday afternoon, braved the heat with Sebastian Hammer for first trail bike ride of the year at Drummer. Early season hurts a little! Anyway, thanks to the person(s) who did fabulous trail maintenance on far side and 48T. They were dry except for the few usual soft spots and really nicely cleared of debris.
