Overview

The Lake Stanley Draper trail system has a healthy amount of trails, configured in a series of loops, ranging in experience and difficulty.

Need to Know

Look out for poison ivy and ticks (summer season). Trails might be sandy during dry conditions.

Description

The Stanley Draper Outer Loops experience is directional and starts on the Green Loop just beyond the portable toilets on the left behind the trailhead kiosk. This is a good warm-up before getting into the tighter and twistier sections of the other loops.

Bear right when the first section of the Green Loop pops out onto the powerline road. It won't be long before you dive back into the trees and start the 'super freaky flow' on the Blue Loop.

The Blue Loop is definitely more engaging than the Green Loop with lots of good side-to-side carving on the red dirt. It's good to be mindful here (and everywhere else) of the relationship between your handlebars and the trees!

The Blue Loop spits you out directly onto The Red Loop where you'll notice that the side-to-side fun changes to ups, downs and arounds. The Red Loop is the most challenging of all the loops, throwing a lot at you very quickly. This loop also provides some optional gravity style segments. These sections are clearly signed and include filters to test your abilities before riding.

You'll transition back to more mellow cruising when finished with The Red Loop by riding another section of the Green Loop to connect with the Orange Loop.

The Orange Loop is a mix of swooping singletrack and tight trees with a few open sections mixed in. Red Rock Hill is memorable since it's open and rolls over some cool red rock - a distinct section in the middle of a sea of oak trees.

The finale for the ride is the Yellow Loop. Take a left onto the powerline road at the end of the Orange Loop. Go past the exit for the Green Loop (on the right) and enter the Yellow Loop on the left. Not too far in you'll be greeted with a nice reminder to "Enjoy the Ride."

The Yellow Loop, like the other loops, offers up its own trail spice with a tight corridor and endless turns. Watch your speed on this trail. Also, be ready for the Over Under Sideways Down, a fly-over structure that spans about 30 feet long and 12 feet high. It's wide (railings included) and easily rideable but has a steep entrance and exit.

This ride ends as the Yellow Loop exits to the parking area, opposite the start of the Green Loop.
