“A fun loop around the state park with varied terrain. Lots of long and flat singletrack.”

This is a fairly long loop for a beginner. However, it's mostly flat with some easy climbs and descents mixed in. Enjoy the scenery of Rocky Point State Park as you ride through what seems like a few different ecosystems.
Need To Know
Crosses a 2 lane public road that runs through the middle of the park.
This loop is pretty straightforward to follow. Ride it clockwise from the trailhead, and just follow it along. It's not technical, and would be suitable for beginners, but it's fairly long. There are bailouts to take you back to the parking area, but it still might be a hike for some.
