Description

This loop can be ridden in either direction. The climbing is steady for several miles, then it levels off as you cruise around the back of the watershed, crossing the east and west forks of Ashland Creek. Parking is near what is locally known as the "swim reservoir" at the top of Granite Street. If you ride clockwise, you share the route with cars as far as the White Rabbit Trailhead, a little over 2 miles. Riding counter-clockwise, the gate is reached within a few hundred yards.

Behind the gates, the road is infrequently used by vehicles transporting forest workers. The surface is smooth and sandy, providing a good alternative in wet weather. Most of the section between Four Corners and Horn Gap will be snow-covered in the winter. Many singletrack options exist, particularly on the eastern side of the loop.
