“Start here if you're new to mountain biking.”
— Nate Hawkins
Dogs must be kept on a leash.
This lollipop loop is the easiest in the park. If you're a new rider, take a left shortly after you begin Shadow Run to head down this trail. It's not technical and there are no big climbs like on Shadow Run. You can go either direction around the loop at the end and return to the trailhead or if you're more adventurous, you can try the rest of Shadow Run next.
At the tip of the lollipop loop, Creekside
branches off. Creekside
is a moderately difficult trail, primarily because of the rocks and the short, steep sections. It will lead you to Grandview and Center Loop
. Many riders do a counter-clockwise loop and finish their ride on Turtle Loop.
