A great selection of fast, flowy and technical single and double track trails.  Its a bit of a maze with little signage, so best to have a guide or join a group ride if you want to find the best trails first time.  But it a small well traveled area bounded by roads on 3 sides, so don't be afraid to explore on your own. Someone will be able to point you back to the lot.
