“Dirt jumps and small unavoidable features. Access to SABA Beach: Narrow, tight, twisting.”— Michelle Shuford
This trail has some dirt jumps and small unavoidable features, but is overall very user-friendly. It also is the access to SABA Beach.
The second half of this trail has some short steep sections that will find you yelling to your co-riders Pedal, Pedal, Pedal! in order to crest the tops of the hills and then coast back down the other side. There is nothing very technical on the trail itself except for the occasional root. However, it is visually intimidating as it is very steep down to the lake edge. Exit right to continue on Central Loop in a counter-clockwise direction.
Color on Map: Red
Dog Water Access: Just before the SABA Beach Intersection, through the woods to the lake edge.
