Description - This park has some excellent mountain biking trails, that are well marked, mapped and maintained. Mostly moderately rocky singletrack, with some technical climbs, technical flat sections, one sick downhill and lots of switchbacks. Its about the size of gay city, with about 8 miles of trails if you loop them all together. Check this place out if your on your way to Pfizer en route to hijacking the latest shipment of viagra - or whatever..
Loops - Just ride all the trails - I rode all the red, then left on fire road, right on orange (past blue) back to school room, then out on orange right on blue back to schoolroom and it was 7.5 miles..
