This was my first trail, this is NOT a beginner trail, as I was informed by another biker while gasping for breath 1.5 mi. in to it. It was much harder than I expected, being a beginner, but I'm glad I stuck it out. I managed to learn a lot about technical bike riding... and how bad I am at it. I did have fun while getting smoked in the process. I was expecting roots but not the uphills and downhills, logs, tight tree-throughs, sharp turns at the bottom of declines and generally hilly terrain. I will most certainly return any chance I get and learn on this trail as it is the closest to me. In my amateur opinion, for the area, this thing is surprisingly hard and a lot of fun, hard work. If you live within a few hours and are tired of your local trail, definitely check this one out and you'll be rewarded.
