“Singletrack using some old log trail, with two lollipop side loops.”
— Jon Sundquist
As the first singletrack one encounters as you follow the two-track access road in from the parking lot, this is the trail most people start their ride with.
It starts several hundred yards in from the parking lot and is found as the second trail leaving to the right (the first being the crossing Overland Trail).
The trail starts out as a level trail with the designer successfully hitting every local high spot to keep the tread dry. Where low spots are encountered, high quality corduroy with large diameter logs has been installed.
This trail is characterized by two "lollipop" segments which leave the main trail, loop, and return. The first lollipop loop comes up pretty quickly on your right. If you stay left on this, you end back on the main truck line.
Continuing on the main line, you get to the bid lollipop loop. This heads out on an old logging road that Thom has rerouted as needed to avoid wet areas. When you come to T junction, go right on the big loop. Stay on the bid loop as it passes the entrance to Myrtles Romp and make the 180 so that you parallel the creek valley. When you get to the start of the newest trail (Goat Boy
or MFT trail), stay on No dab as you make another 180 to head back to the main line and go back towards the parking lot and the access trail.
Just to make it more of a complete loop rather than an out and back, the trail splits and takes its own route back to the end of the access road, which is the start of two other loops (Rib Tickler
and Humpty Dumpty
This trail is overall pretty flat, but with lots of tight turns making it a lot of fun.
