I'm hesitant to ask, but it would be better than finding out I'm not up for the ride after it starts.
If the ride is dirt roads, what do you call "fast paced"?

I don't think they are going to be riding roads. More like trails and maybe some single track. Lots of rocks.

I saw that there's a little single track up there, but don't have a grasp on how much. Is it pretty vast?

No, it isn't that much and technically it is quad track. It is probably 5-6 miles total. It is a nice diversion from the jeep trails.
