Mix of singletrack with some double track and wide sections. Mostly pretty easy, but some hard ups and downs and the length push it into an intermediate rating. Great views of the reservoir.

      Still a bit early after all the rain, expect to wash your bike after. Also, some trail overgrowth and bad ruts make slower going.

       This is a great easy (green) XC trail. There is nothing challenging or "blue" about this trail so I feel it is incorrectly rated.
