Description

The Outer Loops is a side trail off of Elk Traverse. The most common way to ride it is on the way back, or heading South. If going this direction the trail starts with a long fast downhill. It's not terribly steep at all but flows nicely.

Your downhill ride ends in a wash of sorts then the trail climbs back up to Elk Traverse. Along the way, you'll hit a few switchbacks and a few small crux moves in tight corners. The Outer Loop is a great alternative to coming back on Elk Traverse.
