Description

This intermediate loop is more aerobically and technically challenging than North Tower and Pine Loop. Most riders chose to go clockwise. Ride it in this direction, and you'll soon come to a steep, rooty climb that will get even an advanced rider's heart pumping.

After reaching a ridge top, riders are rewarded with a technical descent over narrow and rocky trail. There are a few logs to hop as well, so keep an eye out for them.

Aynes Loop connects with Hesitation Point Trail and Green Valley Trail.
