The purpose-built, double stack loop crosses the maintenance roads in several locations allowing you to explore many different variations of the 10-mile track. A unique feature to this trail is the spring wildflowers. The northern end of the park is covered in literally thousands of wildflowers making for a beautiful spring ride.
