Description

This trail is a pleasant loop that exposes you to flowing sections as well as technical rock and root navigation.

From the parking lot, follow the trail markers over the dam and up the right trail across the dam, continue up a gradual uphill until a trail junction will let you turn right, take this trail and enjoy bombing through the woods next to a lake until you come back around to the dam again.

Easy entry into the area, great loop. I'd start on the right side so you can get some really fun descents and technical rock gardens on exit.
