       Fun techy loop. I went counterclockwise. Seems like it would be good clockwise as well.

       If techy rock gardens are your jam then this trail is for you! Best ridden clockwise but counterclockwise will put the toughest part of the trail at the very beginning while you climb.

       I would not recommend this trail for mountain biking, it is routed and cut for hikers in mind as the primary users.

       Short, but fun trail that’s a slow technical ride. Not a destination, but if you live in the area give it a ride and test your skills. I’ve only ridden it clockwise the 6 or so times I’ve ridden it, plan to give ccw a trie on my next go.
