You will come across various levels of difficulty, sometimes even at the same trail! You can start with the easy level and finish on the red. Most of the trails are smooth, flowing and fast. Other trails have rocks and roots, something that makes them more challenging.

Some of the trails have a couple of short climbs, rolling hills with open field connectors, fairly flat sections, wooden trail sections, steep climbs on the black section, open fielded sections and more.
