This is the perfect trail to cut your teeth on rocky sections if you are just starting out. If you start out North, its uphill, but next to the fire road is a small winding creek bed. Get in there and ride this section up the hill. Now you can find out how loose rocks feel under your tires for the first time and continue in the bed on the down hill section. If you start out going East, its a single track trail that has a small rock garden, winding around. Nothing really difficult, but again its a starting point to feel rocks under your wheels, that will slip and slide without being on a steep incline. This route is a winding single track, slight uphills and downhills, little bumps and curves. There are no trees, but plenty of cows to offer shade.
Good ride for us beginners. Nice steady climb back to parking lot. Good for us beginners. Lots of bugs - I need to figure out a mosquito net for my face!! Bring your Deet!!
