This rating system is based on the International Mountain Bicycling Association Trail Rating System and is applicable to all trail users. When choosing which trails to go on you need to consider:
• Your skill and fitness levels required to stay safe and enjoy your experience.
• If you are new to mountain biking, be aware of the higher demands of these trails and ride within your ability.
• Other factors such as trail conditions, fatigue, weather, peer pressure and equipment can change and increase the difficulty rating of a trail quickly and dramatically.
Helmet use is mandatory! Mountain bikes in good working order and with off-road tires are recommended. For the best trail experience and safety, obey the directional signs. If you are tired, rest. Inspect and respect the conditions. Know your limits and ride (or walk) within them. Control your speed and stay safe!
