This loop is a cross country racers dream. Not totally smooth, but mild with easy to moderate climb as you ride clockwise. The descent is very flowy but often requires some pedal work. The flow is well engineered so that you rarely have to use your brakes but can hit the twists and small berms. The scenery feels like deep forest with down logs scattered every where, a couple bridges and some embedded rocks.
