Loop consisting a green loop (~4 Miles) starting at the Green parking lot, a blue loop (~4 miles) starting at the Blue parking lot. The Blue loop has an optional technical section (the notorious “Beatty’s Black” (1.4 miles) and the “hidden black” if you can find it. This trail system feels less like it was created and more like it was discovered although in the past few years there has been a lot of intentional work done to improve flow. The main loop is fairly open and sandy, with roots and gullies occasionally in play. “Beatty’s Black” is a different story. It is tight and technical, but also features some of the most unique wooden technical trail features in the area. In addition, there is the largest pump track in the area (“The Colonel”) which is smooth, fast, and truly a joy to ride at any age.
