“A great loop of flowy singletrack.”— Tom Bacus
This ride is the best way to see what these trails have to offer. There are miles of flowing singletrack in the piney forest. The ride is almost all shady which is nice on a summer day and the sandy soils in this area drain quickly making it one of the first to dry out after a storm.
There are a few road crossings on this trail, so watch out for cars. The crossings are well signed and you shouldn't have any trouble picking up the trail on the other side. Follow the DLRA Trail as it winds through the trees until you hit the junction with the Henry Lake Trail. Here make a left and keep going. Stay left at the junction with the Henry Lake Connector Trail and left again at the RCW Trail junction.
After RCW Trail, you are heading back. Stay left at the C Trail and at the Henry Lake Connector Trail. Now things get a little bit tricky. There are a number of trails and roads that intersect, so watch the signs and make sure you find the Trail of Woe. Follow this trail back to the DLRA Trail and then it is a short ride back to the trailhead.
There are a number of points along the way to bail out and head back to the car, so don't worry about over committing. Stay on the DLRA Trail for the shortest loop, cut over on the Henry Lake Connector Trail for a few more miles. Skip the RCW Loop for a 12 mile ride, or ride the whole 15 mile loop.
