Description

Rollercoaster follows the contours on the west side of the park. It provides a good climb if you ride it south to north, or a descent with some nice flow from north to south.

Rollercoaster has some steep entrances to wooden bridges that traverse small creek drainages. They can be challenging for young and inexperienced riders; however, they can easily be walked.

There are no major obstacles to speak of except for a short section with roots about halfway in. The trail is bi-directional. Yield to uphill traffic.
