“A 2.7 mile loop connecting Harbins east loops MB2 and Back Side MB4.”
— Dennis Hevener
See Harbins East Trails featured ride for info.
The last of the three interconnecting three loops on the east side of Harbins Park. Provides access to Back Side MB4
Starting at the trail crossing where Harbins east loops MB2
intersects, this 2.7 mile trail -- the last of the three interconnected east loops -- takes you to Back Side MB4
. The shortest way to MB4
is to take the left trail at the crossing and follow the loop CW.
This trail is most commonly ridden counter-clockwise, taking the right trail at the crossing.
There is a climb near the start of this trail, but it's mostly fast, mostly downhill from here on. You'll exit the woods where the trail follows some high-voltage power lines. Look ahead under the power lines, and you'll see the rock face and a part of Back loop. You'll enter the woods again, cross a logging road, then come to a junction. Turn left to complete the 2.7 mi loop. Turn right to go to Back Side MB4
Completing the 2.7 mile loop, you'll be riding uphill, but there are no steep climbs. You'll come to the crossing where the 1.1 mile loop of Harbins east loops MB2
