    Is this trail suitable for a hybrid bike

      I have ridden with an individual that rode single track somehow with a cyclocross bike, but for this trail system I would highly recommend a mountain bike with aggressive knobby tires. If you have never ridden single track before , It would not be a good idea to start at this park. It has some steep climbs & descents as well as anndulating terrain with tight switch backs. But if this is your cup of tea, we will see you there.
