Description

To access the Boggy Draw Loop Trail, continue east on County Rd. W out of the parking lot for a couple hundred yards and take the signed singletrack on the right.

Once on the singletrack, follow it through some good camp sites and across a small dam. There is often wildlife including ducks, geese, frogs, and songbirds around the pond on the backside of this dam. Shortly after the pond you'll encounter a signed intersection with the Mavericks Loop trail. Stay left to continue on the Boggy Draw Loop.

The trail rolls through the cool Ponderosa forest for a while with a few forest service road crossings. The trail is obvious at all of these crossings and should not cause any confusion.

Near mile 3 you'll cross the main county road again and begin a slight descent that flows really well. The trail then turns up for a short climb that will get your heart rate back up but is not terribly difficult. At the top of the climb, go through the cattle gate and drop into another slight descent that has a few small rocky areas.

Dry dusty conditions. Nice shade most of the way. Fun flowy trail and one challenging section for beginners. — 0h 58m
