Like all of the trails in LNSP, this loop reverses direction every year. Watch the signs at the beginning of each loop.

Description

The Laurel Loop is by far the longest and most challenging loop in LNSP. Although there's nothing tremendously technical about the trail, there are several fairly very short, steep pieces that can slow you down and may need to be hiked by a beginner.

Laurel offers some very nice and fast sections, a couple of which were designed around a gully and feature several fun bermed corners. There are also many tight sections that require finesse and a little body english when approached at speed.
