Description

The Northside Loop is a 4.9 mile loop with a bit of everything. If done in the counter-clockwise direction, it starts with a long rocky climb with some technical spots thrown in for fun. As you top out, the trail descends out of the woods and into open sage.

This is where the fun really begins. The sage fields in the middle of this loop are super fast and so much fun. Wooded technical spots are thrown into the mix but the fast sage riding starts again. Riding in this direction can be tough later in the day as you're riding into the sun in all the high speed sections.

The loop ends as you climb back into the forest. The rocks start again as well. Overall the loop is a blast and begs for fast riding.

some great changing scenery, and an excellent way to add more mileage without too much additional climbing 4.9mi
