Overview

The two loops in this area are popular for intermediate and advanced riders. Torn Shirt Trail is definitely the more difficult of the two, with steeper climbs and descents and more technical riding.

Murray Lake Trail is more moderate and flowy - perfect for intermediate riders not quite ready for technical riding.

Description

The Torn Shirt Trail is a little over 8 miles long and is considered an advanced ride. This loop is full of steep climbs and rooty descents.

The Murray Lake Trail is between 7 and 9 miles long depending on which loops you ride and is considered a more moderate trail. This trail contains much more flowing singletrack.

Combine both for a great day of riding.
