This loop begins with the fast and flowy Beginner loop but branches off for much more challenging terrain and obstacles. The Expert Loop is tighter, slower, and loaded with obstacles such as suspension bridge, elevated trail, gap jump, teeter totter, etc. The constant up and down natural terrain of the mounds, tightness, and obstacles make this course feel like a longer ride than the actual mileage. There is even one section where you are climbing a very narrow trail while contorting your body to fit though low cut bushes and branches while steering your front tire through small trees sprouting up while avoiding stumps in the middle of the trail. So many of the man-made sections are very challenging and completely one of a kind. The whole course is quite a challenge but very fun and rewarding.
