Approximately 4.75 miles of trails with more to come. Riding in either direction is permitted and no ride would be complete without riding it in both directions. Another great feature is that, regardless of where you are, you’ll never be far from your starting point, no matter where you choose to start.

       Awesome having trails like this in the middle of town. Lots of different terrain from fast and open to slow and technical.

       Great beginner trail. I took my 7 year old son on his first mountain bike experience here this weekend and he is completely hooked! The trail is well maintained and you can't beat the location right here in town.

       I see comments suggesting this as a beginners trail. While a few parts of it are rideable by the novice it is not the best place to teach the beginner. Way too many tight and technical areas for such a short loop. Awesome trail, just a bit more advanced if you plan to ride the whole thing.

       I hated this trail when I first started riding it but have come to respect it. Still a lot areas I have to push through. From a workout POV this 4 miles it feels much longer than it is. It's sharp turns and technical rock areas have made me a better rider.

       Definitely not for a beginner! Very technical with lots of roots and rocky climbs and accents. Definitely the longest 4 miles I have done. I did get confused a lot on which way I needed to be going. I guess the more I do it the flow will be better like with any trail.
