Depends on what you're looking for. It's a practice-only track, so everyone gets along well. It's very wide, flowing, and forgiving. It is definately not a technical track. There's a large mix of riders, from pro's to kids on 85's. It's very laid back; there's no set motos. Everyone can ride whenever they want from open to close. Most all of the jumps are tabletops (from 10' to 60') with smooth, easy, forgiving jump faces. It's usually busy, but it never gets too crowded. My buddies and I like it and go there often because we have so few choices here in central California. Many turns are flat with loose dirt. There are always overwatered areas that develop good ruts and other areas that are loose, powdery, dry dirt. If you are looking for a place to ride where you can have fun, you'll enjoy it.
