This loop is just a bit more difficult than the Soft Rock Trail, but mostly pretty flowy and easy. This is really the last easy trail before you do the upper loops. Cowley's Curse down can get pretty rocky, so if you want to keep it fun for the kids, stay down here for a while. The trail swoops up and down pretty good, and there are some nice big berms to help keep the speed up.

One little spot to catch a bit of air, but you have to pedal hard, even going down on this trail to keep that fast flow going. Good trail to practice berms and pump skills.

       This is a fun little trail, that I do quite often since it is close to home. Just be weary of people riding the wrong direction, have had a few close calls.
