Loop One is a great trail for beginners. Almost all singletrack, can be ridden fast and can be as aerobically challenging as you want to make it. Loop One is not technically challenging but it hosts lots of twisting turns which are great, if you want to bottle up your cornering capabilities. You will enjoy a long, mostly flat run through the trees. All loops can be ridden both ways and if you feel confident enough, you can try different loops where you can enjoy some really good climbs.
