Description

The Nelson Loop is the best part about Hall Ranch for many riders. Whether you came up from Bitterbrush - Lower Section up the technical climb, or up the more gentle Antelope Trail, you'll enjoy the views and fast, rolling singletrack on the Nelson Loop.

This loop can be ridden in either direction. Most riders seem to ride clockwise, which makes for a slightly steeper but shorter climb to the highpoint, then a fast, flowy descent back to the start point.

Rode trail going clockwise. The climbing was hard because of the switchbacks. Wanted more decent. Loved the homestead.
