“The longest loop in DLRA featuring amazingy, flowy singletrack.”— Tom Bacus
Start the ride at the south end of the Henry Lake Trail South. At the junction follow the signs for the RCW trail. Ahead of you is about 2 more miles of the same singletrack through the trees you have been riding to get here. You'll cross a fire road twice. Once at 1.0 miles and the second time at 1.7 miles. Just stay cross the road to the obvious singletrack on the other side. At 2 miles you'll hit the end of the RCW Trail at another junction. Turn left on the C Trail to head back towards Double Lake.
Like the other trails in this area, this trail is easy to follow and made up of nice flowy singletrack. There are a few junctions along the way, but they are well signed and easy to follow.
