FATMAP difficulty grade
Most people ride Downtown during pedal-driven loops, such as the [Uptown -> Downtown Loop](https://fatmap.com/routeid/367011/Uptown_-%3E_Downtown_Loop).
That said, since this directional and mostly downhill trail runs along the base of the resort, it often serves as a useful conduit to move downhillers around the mountain. The singletrack on Downtown is smooth and non-technical, providing a perfect introduction to mountain biking.
In fact, this may be the easiest mountain bike trail in the region, making it a perfect place to introduce new people to the sport.
"Downtown meanders through a pine forest and offers mountain views through the trees, according to [MammothTrails.org](https://www.mammothtrails.org/trail/35/downtown-mountain-bike-trail/).
The soil can be a bit loose in places due to the volcanic pumice, but overall the tread is predictable.
