Quick in town loop that has enough little climbs and tight trees to keep you engaged.

Description

The trail starts just west of the entry to the park with the longest climb of the trail. It parallels 26th St. and then dives into the first hollow which winds back and forth in and out of the hollow several times before clearing the hollow for a little climb/descend/climb to a small rocky section.

Next a small descent to a sharp right uphill and you've entered the Roller Coaster; several short descents to climbs.

After clearing these you'll end up on the southern most climb that sends you back to some swooping curves, a couple small rock piles and a railroad tie bridge. Another little climb heading back north and you go through some smooth corners and now it's some flat land for a few tight corners back to another climb up to the tightest tree section of the course.

Mostly down hill through the pines before a tight left hand switchback and up a small right hand climb and another downhill. After crossing the gravel access road there is a left hand at the bottom and climb a minute before turning back right to a little tight downhill section through the final hollow.

Beware of some tight corners and loose branches that general hang low after storms. Another bridge and slightly right up a hill and then left around the hollow and a couple more trees and tight corners and you've made it out of the final hollow before climbing back up to the road you started at.
