       This is a fun and easy trail. It has smooth climbs with the downhills being flowy and fun. You can ride it on a hardtail without any problems. Good for beginners but don’t let that scare you more experienced riders away. Easily completed in 30-45 min.

       I forgot to note that going by my gps watch and how my legs felt, I doubt there’s 900-1000 ft climbed on the loop. I would say it’s some less than that, maybe 500-700 ft.
