Lower Trail is often ridden out of the park at the end of a ride instead of Middle Trail due to less punchy climbs and more natural flow. This trail flows over and around natural rock features and can be ridden with speed. Most of this trail is flat, with the exception of a couple punchy climbs and a couple short rocky descents. Many hikers use this trail as well!
