This is a Nature Trail built for hikers, and has signs along the way to read and learn about. It also happens to have a great viewpoint and some fun rock riding near the end of the trail.
When coming off the Nature Trail Connector from the main Biking Parking Lot, turn right onto this trail to get to the fun part.

       Pretty fun. Lots of flow and enough rock features to keep things interesting.
