“A relaxed loop for beginners that sticks to the valley, avoiding big climbs and descents.”— Michael Ahnemann
There are plenty of options to add on some more challenging stuff - try riding up Eve's Gulch and tacking on Forbidden Fruit Flow Trail for a bit more spice.
Next, look for Citizens Trail - this short, easy cruise has great views and excellent wildflowers early in the season. At the end of Citizens, take a left, and you'll ride a very short section of Griffin Butte Connector before taking another left to merge onto the end of Eve's Gulch trail. Although these trails are marked as intermediate, you'll be on short, easy sections.
Look for a turn to the right on Shadyside Trail. This smooth, flowy, singletrack cruise is a mellow descent most of the way with a few short climbs along the way. It offers pleasant shade in the mid-summer heat, and has a few roots along the way to keep things interesting, but nothing major.
After 1.7 miles on Shadyside, you'll come to an obvious intersection - make a sharp left turn to continue downhill, and blast a few hundred yards back down to the trailhead.
