Description
This ride starts with the Race Loop, then on to the RPR Loop, cut over using Decision Point Trail to get to the Super D Start, back down to the Race Loop, over to the Upper Loop, then finished out the with Race Loop.

The Race Loop ties most of the trail system together so most folks leave from the pavillion and start on that trail, then add in their loop(s) of choice. The Upper Loop is a nice technical challenge, the RPR loop is a longer loop with lots of granite challenges, and the Super D is a mix of flowing granite and dirt sections with some technical features that will challenge every bike and rider.

So, there are plenty of options in linking these trails together and none are wrong! Just explore, and try them all, or even ride them in opposite directions to mix things up.
