Flattish loop suitable for all abilities. Good for kids and the less experienced, but equally fun for experts to ride at pace. There are a number of smaller jumps and doubles, all are easily avoidable. Check out the kids area in the middle for the little ones.

Access Info

 This is a great area for people of different abilities to ride. The sections with jumps (optional) and berms is really cool.
