This private touch can be seen during your ride in the way the land is maintained. Volunteers and paid staff have laid large amounts of wood chip on the bridle trail to halt erosion and keep rain from causing trail damage. In addition to the bridle paths, this park has an intertwined network of nature trails. Each path is well marked. With the large number of families and small children walking the nature trails, officials have prohibited mountain bikes from these areas. Terrain: Entirely doubletrack bridle paths covered with wood chips or packed dirt. Two short sections that have loose rocks caused by water run-off. A number of medium-sized climbs with only a few short steep climbs.
