Description
The Canyon Loop is a relatively quick loop (15-20 minutes) that can be ridden by just about any rider. It's got enough twisty singletrack and fast sections to keep intermediate and expert riders entertained, but the lack of any extremely difficult moves or dangerous areas will allow beginners to feel comfortable as well.

The trail surface is dry, hard-packed dirt most of the way, with a short section that winds through slightly more lush forest. There are some nice views along the way, looking out over the hilly terrain of the foothills.
