Overview

A quickie ride out to the east side loops and back. The Pines, East Loop Connector, Yin, Stone Soup, Yang and back again. This ride is all singletrack except for a road crossing.

Need to Know

Chalet is closed in the summer. A trail pass is required - $4 per day or $25 per season. There are water spigots on the machine shop building near the large south bay door.

Description

Start at the trailhead by the chalet. Cruise out through The Pines & East Loop Connector. Bomb down through the pit before crossing Red Bud Road. Hang a left onto Yin and experience some of your first boulders. The rest of Yin is a cruise through pines and hardwoods until you cross the XC ski trail to Yang.

Stay to the left to find the entrance to Stone Soup. Stay left again to ride Stone Soup clockwise. You'll encounter a lot of rock and boulders. After completing Stone Soup hang left again to cruise out on Yang which spends a lot of time in pines and is a little rooty in places. After crossing the road double back to the trailhead the same way you came out.

History & Background

Many of Nine Mile's singletrack trails were first cut by an archery club in the early 1980's. The rough corridors were used for shooting lanes and a number of national level archery competitions were held at Nine Mile in the 80's and early 90's. Eventually, the first local mountain bikers found the rough shod corridors and singletrack was born. The Pines trail and many of the East Loop trails are some of the original archery shooting lanes.
