Hartley is a beautiful park with some great hardwood forests, an open grassland marsh and a large rock bluff. Some trails are fairly rocky and rooty, which lead to some technical challenges, but are not overly difficult. Many of the new reroutes are quite smooth and have nice flow to the design. There are several punchy climbs with enough rocks and roots to make choosing the right line important, but there aren't any lung busters, just rolling hills.

Caution: At this point, all trails are two-way, so use caution and slow down when the trail limits your visibility.
