The trail mostly twists around the hillside up and down short climbs and descents. Plenty of roots throughout the trail. This is a really good beginner or first trail ride since there isn't much climbing if you stick to the main loop other than one section of 4 switchbacks. It is always easy to follow the trail with frequent exits for when you're tired. This trail is also nice for more experienced riders because when you start to go fast the trail becomes much more difficult. The trail in my experience drains pretty well but shouldn't be ridden wet.

       Nice, relaxing and calming! Just took my new bike here and it feels like a cool trail to aclimate to it... Will definitely ride it again many more times!

       Relaxing trail. Good for practice rides. Good flow, good berms, nothing crazy or too advanced.

       Great trail. Be careful though. Almost was taken out by a fast moving bike going the other direction. This trail would be perfect if it were one direction.

       I'm probably an "intermediate" rider. Love Zombie, rollercoaster, etc.

      Given that, this is a pretty beginner trail, honestly. Has some good flow and sections, yes, but can be crowded, and wasn't what I hoped it'd be. There's a jump section that's not technically part of the park (on private property).
