Fun smooth trail. Machine build ST a little on the wider end of things. Fast and flowing with lots of turns and relatively few rocks. Great place to practice turns and short rollers up and down.

       Easy fun rolling trail. Very easy going and smooth. Not a whole lot of trail features to play on though. Relatively flat for the areas topography.

       Fun, fast, enjoyable ride. Nothing crazy. No dismounts needed. Plenty of other bikers and hikers so keep your eyes open.
