 Catch the trail from the campground trail or from the campground road. Easy to spot the start at the old water tower. Suitable for kids on a 16" bike with handbrakes who are ok with single track and some roots.

 A great trail for kids to have fun on while you're spending time in the campground. It relatively flat with a bit of up and downyness (that's a term, I'm sure.) So you can start working on flow and cornering.
