“A challenging loop with big climbs and big descents.”— Melissa Wagner
While only ~50% of the trail would be considered 'singletrack', much of the trail is technical equestrian trial. It is wide, but not really 'doubletrack' or road.
The descents are fast, steep and loose.
Make your way down the doubletrack.
You'll cross the creek at least a couple of times. The creeks in Busiek are often dry but be prepared to get your feet wet. They can also flood after heavy rain. Use caution.
The first trail is White Trail, one of the more beginner friendly trails at Busiek State Forest. Turn left when you reach Westside Connector and follow it until you come to Orange Trail.
Orange Trail has a good climb and super steep and fast descent. Once you complete the often loose descent and encounter another junction with Westside Connector, turn right. Follow Westside Connector a short distance and keep an eye out for Purple Loop on the left. Purple Loop is trail that features creek crossings, a big climb, and a singletrack bluff switchback descent. This trail will lead you back to the parking lot.
