There are a lot of rides we think of as being great for people who are new to the sport, this is one of the best. I have been riding trails for decades, although the trail is not technical or long it keeps me coming back for a fast flowing pedal that is less than an hour.

I like to ride the loop clockwise to experience the 2.2 miles long downhill railroad grade of the Hornbeck Trail and come back on the fast pedal of the Lower Ditch Trail. Be sure to check out the Freitas Overlook on the Hornbeck Trail for a nice vista and a little history lesson.
