Trail description: ~1.8mi of groomed trail. Trail can be ridden either direction. To ride it CCW, follow the path through the tall grass and take an immediate right. This will put you in a tight section of trail that meanders through the south wetland. Then you’ll take another right (this one’s obvious). Follow the trail until the next fork. Take a right to make a short lollipop loop through the swamp or stay left to bypass. After that you’ll skirt the swamp and follow the trail left up onto the east mound and back into the woods in the NE corner of the park. You’ll follow the trail through some mature buckthorn and into the north wetland. Eventually, you’ll end up crossing the ski trail twice and pop out on the west mound. Climb up onto the hill and follow the trail around the perimeter of the mound and back up the hill to be rewarded with a fast descent (and a jump). You’ll merge with a wide path in the forest and then take a right back towards the parking lot.
