flat, best to do as a loop with Go John, Quartz or Flat Rock.

We went Slate, Quartz, Go John combo and it’s very scenic with plants, rocks and views. Nice exercise.... not an aggressive elevation.

This was my first mountain biking trail. There are several of down hill areas where you pick up good speed. Note that there are some very rocky areas. The trail is not marked very well toward the end so keep track of we're you are
