The eastern side of this trail is the "Meadow", a wide, flat, curving trail perfect for learning how to ride corners and find lines. The trail meanders through a meadow and at the end a sharp left bails out to close the Meadow section. Continuing straight the trail gives way to narrow singletrack and a sudden, short uphill that begins the "Woods" a winding bench-cut trail with many short up- and downhill segments and berm-turns built along several small ridges. There are 11 wooden features, mostly skinnies (6 on the Meadow, 5 on the Woods) that progressively become more difficult along the totality of the Basic Training Skills Trail.

       This is the first "new" trail built and has been ridden in nicely. Contains 11 professionally built alternate line features that will test your skills, as intended! The "Little Kids" area is suitable for ALL ages, including toddlers on striders or training wheels. Also a blast for any age/ability to ride the features in this section! The "Big Kids" area is classified Beginner but still presents a challenge to sharpen your skills before tackling the network trails. Four more riding features in this section are sweet but know your limits, especially on the drop!

       This is the only trail not connected to the network of trails and is accessed from the Landing Zone area, just past the start of the Perimeter trail from the main entrance. It is a great warm-up... the Big Kids section is fast and fun!
