Tight and twisty, all dirt singletrack. 2 separate loops built partially on the former site of an outdoor amphitheater from the 1970ís. Moderate elevation gains, and tight forest make for good twisty rides. Easily accessible from the numerous bike paths that intertwine the metro-east, so driving to this trail is not required. Not recommended immediately following rain due to the dirt surface, and low elevation of these trails. These trails are great fun for everyone from the beginner to the advanced rider.
