“A great after work loop with a juicy trail segment.”— Paul Rogers
Tons of options from the turn around point here. I like to combine this with more Pioneer trail, Scott's short loop, or Harmony/Dascombe trails.
After a short dirt climb, you are at the flume where the trail starts. Follow along the Flume until it hits hwy. 20, cross over the hwy. carefully and pick up the flume again. At about the 3.4 mile mark the flume trail ends on Willow Valley Rd. go left here and make the short grind up to Pioneer on the pavement. At the halfway point (5.0miles) you are at lower Pioneer Trail and have tons of options from here.
The other option is to head down Pioneer from here, cross over to Old Miners' and back on the Flume to Coyote Ct. There is a small overgrown side trail that descends from the backside of the water tanks at the end of the flume trail. It's a bit confusing but its a good dirt alternate to going down the road. Pick up that fun singletrack along the highway I mentioned earlier. a great way to get back to where you parked.
