This is the Eastern most loop at Concord. Both directions offer a little different feel. The clockwise direction offers a nice flowy section along the lake with some optional technical rock features. It continues into the longest and steepest climb at the park. From the top you can connect into middle east or continue along Orient for some quick turns and interesting gully features as the trail makes its way through several long turn sections.
Counterclockwise is commonly ridden as an option to ride the entire trail system in a continuous loop. It climbs more gradually but still offers some lung burning quick climbs up some switchbacks.
In either direction this trail is incorporated into almost every ride that you may complete at Concord. The total loop is less than two miles so try it out in both directions to see which you prefer!
