One of the more challenging trails on the East Loop at Lake Bryan. Many ups and downs along the creek section on the south end. There is an option to bypass this section, novice riders may not enjoy it. If the bypass is taken, there are still a few more technical locations along the trail but nothing that someone can't walk if they don't think they can ride it.
