The trail is not well marked, but there are a couple of laminated signs stapled to trees saying "this way". There are small bridges at creek crossings and one place where the trail zig-zags back and forth across a dry creek bed. You can pick up a lot of speed here and get some air time popping up on the other side! There are also a few very steep ravines to brave, but they have alternate bypass paths for those who don't care for that kind of thing. The trail's short enough that you can ride it two or three times and enjoy the fun spots again!
