Almost entirely tree-covered, this beautiful trail is well worth the effort.

Description

This trail is the bulk of what is known to mountain bikers as the 7th St Loop. It splits left from Ahwingna Trail at a large tree with a hitching post beneath it. Tree-covered and green, it's one of the best trails for miles around.

The trail is hard-pack with many wide switchbacks descending a north-facing hillside. Then the trail continues along the bottom of a small canyon, darting and turning through really fast lines beneath the trees. At the bottom, it bends left and starts climbing a small series of steep switchbacks. The climb back to the top is also completely tree-covered and a real pleasure to ride.

Cresting the last rise, follow the trail down a steep channel of rocks and stay left along the ridge trail for a half-mile or so to complete the loop.

Just ok. Extreme hardpack so traction is limited and switchbacks are frequent. The good news is very few hikers take this section and you can climb most of the trail on the way back out. Better for climb excercise than having fun on the downhill part. Jul 17, 2015
