Activity: Mountain Bike Rush Trail - Downhill is 3.5 miles via Exit Stage Left. Uphill and downhill mileage is 4.7 miles. The most thrilling downhill ride ever! Nice banking, tight turns, and optional jumps.


TIPS - On the trail, at the first turn off we took Exit Stage Left (for a more exciting ride), but Through the Trees is a lot more mellow for beginner riders (the two trails meet up again).

*BEGINNERS: wear pants, biking gloves, and knee/elbow pads for less abrasions from falls
