Easy and smooth, with some small berms and a couple optional bridges. Good place to practice for kids and beginners.

 AWESOME! I'm new to MTB and this was the first time I hit a trail other than my local one. So glad I decided to bring my bike with me on this trip and try something new. The Practice Loop was so much fun and I loved that it had some features on it to challenge you and give you a chance to "practice" some technical riding. They have three bridge features on the Practice Loop (was my first time going over a bridge) and I thought they were fun and easy to do (mind you I went slow). The Loop is short which was good for me because I was riding alone and I like to try and stay close to my truck when I'm new some place, just in case. The second day I was out there they were actually doing maintenance on the trail. The coolest part was they asked me to be the first to ride their new line that they were putting in. The crew working out there were so nice and seemed to be very passionate about what they were doing! The new line was an "easy" option to the right of one of the more challenging rocky sections and it was loads of fun. I was having some issues on the technical side of it and the new easy line was nice if I wanted to maintain the flow and keep on going. I used it a couple more times but also took the "harder" line to practice getting up it. I would highly recommend this loop to anyone. It would be a great warm-up to do before heading out on the longer trails and/or a great short loop to take the kiddos on. Great place to put in some laps and get out on your bike! I WISH we had trails like this at home in Lake Havasu. Permanent smile on my face while riding at Three Peaks, very fun and flowy trails.
