Classic blue singletrack. This is a two-way multi-use trail that is open to mountain bikers, trail runners, hikers, and birdwatchers. It rides well both directions, but the descent from the top when riding counter-clockwise is hard to beat. If your legs are tired or your younger riders are ready to head back to the car, use John Jolly to cut your adventure short. Take a break at the hub when you make it to the top, stop and peek in the bluff shelter, and enjoy the 11 bridges scattered throughout the trail.

      Hero dirt for 98% of the trail. A couple drainages could use maintenance before spring to eliminate some puddling.
