The kids learner track at MERA is BMXable. The counterclockwise quarter-mile loop is built for kids to learn to ride ATV bikes, but gets low use and is appropriate for BMX or MTB riding. Furthermore, sharing the track between motorized and non-motorized users is a valuable learning skill for the youngsters. The loop has some down hill and uphill riding challenges. Ongoing work with this track will yield more terrain features. A parking area is on the left as the road levels out on Fox Hill Road.
