There are three bike/hike trails here. Violet loop is an advanced trail that is pretty rocky. Orange loop which is an intermediate trail. The violet trail is a lil too rocky for my liking. Although, the orange trail is a blast! You pick up some serious speeds at times.I ride it at-least once a week.

Violet and red trails are very techy with lots of jagged rocks. If you are someone who enjoys smooth flowey trails you won't enjoy red or violet trails. However, if you want to get your ass kicked and enjoy rocks and a challenge this will be right up your alley.

This is a really nice park with good trails. Our only complaint is that it is always crowded. It's rare to have any length of trail to yourself...and it's pretty noisy. Good scenery though.
