This is a beautiful trail! I started at the Health and Human Services building, and took purple to blue to yellow. It's easy to find, well marked, and good parking. Although close to campus, you feel like you are in the deep woods pretty soon in. I would definitely not describe this trail as "easy" though - it has some pretty intense inclines! Also, watch out for mountain bikers! I liked the route and plan on adding this option into my rotation!

Although not very technical, this trail system is not "easy", as the rating states. There are some very steep grades, especially on the spur trails from the parking areas. It's well built, well maintained and fun! Though not a lot of total miles (it's more than 4.5), the main and secondary loops are great for doing multiple laps.
