A great winding mountain trail through the forest - downhill primary. Occasional roots and rock gardens help to keep it interesting. Acceptable downhill for kids age 10+.

       Great trail up and down! I climbed it on the way to sidedoor, and it has great views and is a manageable climb. I also came back down it, and it flows well and has plenty of jumps to keep your smile going and the stoke high!

       Please do not climb Barney Ford, especially Flow. There's actually a new climbing trail for lower barney ford.

       Flow trails are meant to be ridden downhill! Please take Juniata up so people don’t have to stop all the time for Uphill riders!

       This is generally a downhill trail. While it's technically a 2-way trail, biking up Barney Ford is generally frowned upon unless it's for a competition. The preferred route up is Juniata!! You will get some not great looks climbing BF.

       Kinda tail of two trails, lower section up to the top of the bypass is a flow trail with jumps, up section is a bench cut trail the tips down the mountain.
