       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.

       It is meant to be ridden CLOCKWISE. Please ride clockwise. There are dangerous blinds created otherwise. It is a one way trail for a reason. Also, to clear up any confusion, it is only 395 in elevation gain.

       Fun and easy. It had been a while since i been out on a trail and this was a good break-in.
