Amazing trial for mountain biking! It starts out with a steady up hill for about three miles then becomes super steep towards the end of Kent’s, but when you reach the Phil trailhead it’s all down hill. The down hill portion is not to mess around, at first it’s easy. You can go fast and most of it’s smooth but when you get to a rock formation then cross a road it gets a lot steeper and way more technical. I suggest going slow down it at first but it depends on how good you are at mountain biking. There is jumps and rock formations that you can ride over, but you can avoid them if you want to. If your mountain biking I suggest a sum what nice full suspension MTB with disc brakes and adjustable forks and rear suspension. Trail heads are also marked so there is know way to get lost. Love this trail! Ride it every other day, highly recommend!

Dusty and sandy in places. Otherwise fabulous. Heart rate up on Kent’s and fun but not too technical downhill on Phil’s.

Nice trail, heavy with mountain bikers, so be prepared. It's a thin trail designed for biking

It is an amazing bike ride, I felt so majestic. I biked all the way in and I thought it was a pretty easy trail. Just be careful because some of the trails are two way and people don’t slow down.

This loop is pretty fun & very dusty. Be ready to hose your bike off when you're done for sure. There is 2 parts to this loop, the 1st is Kent's Trail, a 2 way trail up that gets you Phil's Trail, which is a 1 way back down to the parking lot. Not to tough, but still challenging & fast with a lot of options for different riding paths. Very fun.

Great trails! Mixed with all kinds of things like flow track, rocky sections, and the trails are so smooth!

great mountain biking trail

Great ride to get your feet under you. First half is a slight rise while the latter is almost entirely downhill. There are a few technical spots on the second half worth keeping an eye out for but overall it's a pretty easy ride. Watch out for the small gaps between the trees.

Awesome moderate trail. Tough middle third, but excellent ride down the back side of the loop. Lots of shade, wildlife, friendly people.
