Tight singletrack trails on about a 10 acre plot of land. There are some nice ascents and descents with nothing too extended. Trails are nicely marked so you know which direction to take them without getting lost. They even have multiple exits marked if you need to cut your ride short and can't hit the whole trail network. some nice views of the rocky river. Also some nice sections with small berm jumps. Some sections can feel a bit of deja vu since they are so tightly built. They did a great job of getting mileage out of the land they've got. Fun times.

      Downed trees in many spots on the trail but they are working hard to clear them. Heartbreak Ridge and Death Valley closed due to massive fallen trees.
