I would rate this Trail as moderate for beginners. For those of us who are more seasoned it's nothing too difficult. Multiple inclines and declines. The park map says it's a 2.9 mile trail however I wasn't able to record the walk so I'm not 100% sure how accurate it is. All in all a good trail lightly trafficked. Dogs must be on a leash and picked up after. No biking on this trail. There was a little bit of trash by the tower myself and a friend picked up a lot of it.
Grade A Trail! A must ride of Hampton Roads! Real incorporates a good amount of uphill but oh so many down hills. The effort that it takes to get up some of those crazy winding hills (feels like the Tour De France gone off-road) is all so worth it when you fly down these sweeping descents. Plenty of jumps to keep the advanced riders entertained while still do able for the novice riders. PLEASE DO NOT WALK THIS TRAIL!!!! Can't count the number of times I've been yelled at for almost taking people out as I fly down these blind corners to find kids walking on the exit of the corner. This trail is clearly marked as a MTB trail, please know that if you're walking, the mountain bikers have the right of way and you are not entitled to be angered if you are hit as this is a fast paced trail. With that being said, this trail is truly excellent and if you haven't ridden it, make the effort to ride it ASAP!
