“A quick desert ride just west of Bloomington. This route is ~2/3 singletrack and semi-technical.”
— Edward-Bam Lopez
The Bloomington Microloop Ride is a quick ride that starts at the Bloomington trailhead for the Bearclaw Poppy trail. It features about 4 miles of nice, narrow singletrack, then two miles on gravel road to close the loop.
Need to Know
The Microloop is designed to be ridden ONE WAY, but many riders use the westbound leg of the loop to connect to the Stucki Springs trail or to the Bearclaw Poppy trail. There's very little climbing on this year-round trail system. Enjoy!
Start out like you're going to ride Bearclaw Poppy. Just after you pass the western corner of the fence around the flood basin (about 1/3 mile from the step-over gate), fork left when you see the "Bloomington Microloop" sign.
The playful Microloop eventually pops you out onto some gravel-grinding doubletrack. Take this back to the east as it winds its way back to your starting area.
