    Pardon my lack of knowledge about this park, but hows the climbing? Elevation seems to be 300 ft per lap. Are they short burst of steep hills like water dog or are they gradual ups?

    Short and steep. I did the beginner course last year and I remember two. One is the pavement section going south on Shelley. The other was a fireroad between marshall posts 7 and 9. I think the intermediate/advanced course went up a singletrack climb. It's the switchback section shown on the east side of the course. The beginners skipped the portion east of Shelley. Instead of crossing Shelley, we turned right onto it.

    Nice description gddyap!

    The ascents are considered short, punchy climbs. The long course does have the switchback climb which is hardest at the bottom heading to the first corner, then it flows to the top.
