At some points during this ride the trail may be flat and smooth allowing a short, big-ring effort. This changes drastically into a treacherous field of rocks about half the size of a mountain bike wheel. The trails here challenge your ability to adapt and to navigate many different surfaces. But because the surfaces change so quickly, the amount of time spent on terrain you hate is limited, making the ride enjoyable overall. Terrain: primarily wooded singletrack. Surface has more rocks than roots, making proper line selection and tire pressure important. Fairly dry because of sandy soil, but in some areas there can be mud and standing water.

Freetown SF has somthing for every one,but it is famus for it's endless rock gardens. theres not much climbing but there are some steeps you just have to look for them. alot of the easy to find trails have been hurt by dirt bikes, but theres still tones of untuched trails, you just have to look for them. there are two narrow briges that cross over a stream that will have thinking twice every time. i its long technical climbs or steep rocks to ride down you will have a feild day at the ledge.
