“Flat, wooded beginner singletrack with some 4 foot wide arched bridges, 8 foot wide corridor.”— jeff parker
Starting at the main Tech trailhead, you ride from the 3D trail map through the red pines, cross Pilgrim Road, and enter the Tolkien Trails. Riding counter-clockwise following the easy green arrows, you pass the Tolkien Trail parking lot, around Troll Loop (where most of the ground level board walks are) back to the central Ring Loop (one ring to bind them all) back out Ent Loop, back to Ring, out Gnome Loop, then Elf, then Hobbit (past the paint ball area) then back on Ring and Tecumseh to the main trailhead.
About 4 miles total, the whole thing is like petals on a flower with Ring at the center. With so many small loops, you can bail out quickly at any of the Ring Loop intersections and if you want to head back early.
