“As close to a roller coaster as you can get on your bike!”

Hydro Loop is just over 2 miles of twisty fun! Ride it counter-clockwise for maximum effect, descending down to lake level through several different forest ecosystems.

There is a spot about 2/3 through the loop in this direction that's a popular spot for taking a breather, where you get down to lake level and get some great views across the cove.
