The Peninsula Trail is a 3-mile round trip out-and-back trail going from the Forest Ridge Welcome Center to the edge of the forest. It had rained pretty heavily the day before so the water was a little higher than expected, but the ground wasn't muddy and was easy to walk on. Not particularly steep or challenging, it's a pleasant, enjoyable walk.

Despite it's short length this is a nice trail. You can tell that some thought was put into the design and development of it with the features that were built to preserve the trail. It's well packed clay like dirty with roots and rocks. There aren't many steep climbs and as a result the trail has a really nice flow to it. Gradual inclines and pump track like flats and declines. Because it can be ridden really fast you have to stay aware of oncoming traffic. As such, keeping your head on a swivel can be as mentally taxing as it is physical. There is one nice rock garden that last for about 100-150 feet with some alternative paths through it.
