My Go To Trail

You really get the best of everything here at Croft. Beginners have a lot of easy trails they can hit and more advanced riders have more technical areas. The only bad thing I will say about this place is the trails are not marked clearly in some areas. Also, after a good rain storm I’d give the area at least two days to dry out.
