Summary:
This is now a very ice trail for MTB's. I used to ride this on my dirt bike but that's not allowed anymore. The deep ruts have been worked out and the big climbs have been removed so it's a lot easier to ride now. It is a little more technical and difficult (climbs) than Old Post Park but I imagine most all riders can ride it. Most riders ride it in the clockwise direction, it's is easier to ride this way. But if you want more climbs the riding it counter clockwise will suit your needs. Give it a try, I think you enjoy it.

Recommended Route:
Clockwise.

Summary:
During the Winter of 2013/2014, some kind volunteers did a lot of work and maintenance on this trail. Sweet Spot has great views, awesome downhill sections and some really nice climbs. It's a bit more technical than the trails at Old Post, but nothing a novice couldn't handle. Did I mention the view? It's wonderful. Do yourself a favor and give the Sweet Spot a ride. You won't be disappointed.

Recommended Route:
I enjoy riding counter-clockwise, but Doug from Chain Reaction says clockwise is the way to go. To each their own. ;)

This trail is no longer in use at this time (2012) and has been OOS for several years now. It WAS a great techincally challenging trail when it was still accessible.

Summary:
Unless you want to walk up incredibly steep hills that only motocross guys can get up on their bikes than dont go here. The ruts are so big that your pedals will hit the side of the trails and half the time your walking because of the ruts. If it were not for these ruts than this trail would be freakin sweet because the downhill parts are so steep that you get some serious speed, but alas the ruts make it impossible to go down any of the hills.

Prpeare to get clay in your tires and ride in some ruts. This trail has gone downhill in recent years but is still a decent place for beginners.
