First portion is lots of up and down cross country riding with some rocks.
Last portion is a fun flowy descent down to the (not so skinny) "skinnies" crossing the bog on South Park.
Note: There is often confusion between Serendipity and Acrophobia. Shortly after you start this trail, you will see a trail off to your right, which is the beginning of Acrophobia. Acrophobia later crosses over Serendipity again, and it is difficult to see the continuation of Serendipity due to some rock in front of you at the junction.. Turn left at the junction as if to go down Acrophobia, but immediately turn right again (within a couple meters of your first turn), and Serendipity continues behind the rock.
