Update

A loop of doubletrack forest roads with some decent climbing and nice views.

Overview

This is a moderately strenuous loop for most riders. However, if you want more, you can combo platter it with Little Smokey Loop or Lookout Mountain Loop. Also nearby are the Little Antelope Valley Loop and Casa Diablo Overlook Ride which could make an epic day of riding in this area. All three rides stage from the same area and you can craft your own super duper loop. Big Smokey offers up fantastic views of Bald Mountain and the Owens River Valley early in the ride.

Description

The classic way to ride it is to do it clockwise. It's signed with the brown and yellow USFS signs. As you head farther south, you see a chalk mine to your left as well as Antelope and Glass Mountains. Later on as you start heading back west, The Sherwins, Laurel Mountain, McGee Mountain and Mt. Morrison present themselves. Overall, a relaxing ride over smooth doubletrack with moderate climbs and descents to keep you alert while you zen out.
