An easy meander around hayfields. One extended climb to the top of of mile-long field. Rest at the picnic table and enjoy the view before swooping down Hayride. One section of Home Again (between the long boardwalk and a small parking lot) has some turns that may be challenging to beginners. They are given the option to follow Sky Hawk Lane and Mountainside Drive around that section.
