“A fun, fast ride for beginners with short intermediate sections.”— Jared Crockett
Go through the small gate on the south side of the road and at the top of the small climb, veer right through the trees and along the shore of Dixon Reservoir. Watch for bald eagles in the trees and fishing in the lake.
Climb away from the west side of the lake over a small bridge, then head south again. At the fork, go right on Timber Trail and up a short, increasingly steep climb. Don't go around the rocks for erosion control - hop them, you know it's good for you!
Follow the rolling singletrack in and out of the pine forest and take advantage of little jumps and fast rocky patches. Travel due south until the trail bends to the left on South Loop Trail and eventually back to the north. Follow the single to doubletrack on Valley Trail through the prairie dog colony. Side trails to the right head to Spring Canyon Park. At the south end of Dixon Reservoir, either stay straight on the singletrack and cross the dam, or head left and re-ride part of your outbound trail (both part of Reservoir Loop Trail).
After the dam, its the same trail you took out all the way to Banyan.
