“The expert loop at Lebanon Hills and second-most difficult.”— John Lundell
The Most Difficult trail that starts at #212 has been known as the X Loop for many years. It is about a mile of trail that starts with a large log pile. This is to test your skills and readiness for what is to come. The rest of the X Loop has more logs, drops, rock rides, and some nice twisty trail sections. To get to the Extremely Difficult trail you must enter the X Loop. Many riders make a loop by combining the X Loop and XX Loops, going from #212 to #213 then back to #212. These are called stacked loops and can be ridden as many times as you want. Another available loop is taking a right at #213 (X-Out) and #216 (X-Return) on back to #212.
