Today was my first time mountain biking and I did the blue trail at Island Lake. It's 9.3 miles long and was a great challenge. I would say its a great beginner or even easy intermediate. There is enough up and downs to make it fun and challenging, but not to make the trail daunting to a beginner.
Other riders at the park said the yellow trail (at approx 6 miles) is more challenging than the blue with greater inclines than the blue.
Loved this place.
This trail is pretty basic. There aren't many tough climbs or descents, but you can get some good speed going through the turns. There is a nice pond in the middle of the blue loops to take a swim if the weather is nice.
I had an excellent time here on the Blue trail. Marked every quarter mile or more. Excellent scenery in this fall. Be full of energy and pack some snacks ,It was close to 2 hours for me first time. Some hills were a little challanging but a lot of fun. There was one place that had a 45* drop -off so be careful. Have fun.
