Length: 6.7 mi • Est. 2 h 51 m
Great park for mountain biking. The blue loop is fairly easy; however, it can get tough during the summer months when temperatures soar and there is little shade. Plan to start early to beat the heat and the crowd. There are bathrooms by the parking lot and throughout the park. Accessibility: This trail has an average grade of 4% and a max grade of 7%. There is a combination of paved and dirt sections, and the dirt sections may not be accessible. The paved sections are typically at least three feet wide, but the dirt sections may be as narrow as 1.5 feet wide, may be rocky, and may have a cross-slope of more than 2%.Show more
