Description

The B Loop is longest of the 4 stacked loops of the Highland Recreation A-B-C-D Loops and has one cutoff should you need it. It is still a long way back to the trailhead, however. For both the A and B Loops, the outbound is longer than the inbound due to the number of switchbacks.

Your time is spent navigating rocks and roots on this narrow singletrack-lovers heaven. There is plenty of off-camber trail to keep you on your toes, too. Beginners should ride this trail with other experienced riders; it is a challenging ride. The basic A/B Loop defines the character of this trail.

From the trailhead on Livingston Road, ride the A Loop (3.8 miles) & B Loop (9.7 miles) as the basic continuous trail.

Cottonwood fluff lined trail. I'm really not sure where the exact spot is.

Great place to pause and meditate on this fallen rider and the inherent dangers of aerobic exercise in a remote location.

Connector trail going from B to C loop

Another great example of the use of filters as this rock garden on the short two way connector from the B loop to the C loop warn the rider of what to expect on this technical C loop extension.
