Description

This is a fun loop below the Sierra Vista Trail: Dripping Springs Rd. to Soledad Canyon Rd trail. You can get to it from either the Dripping Springs Rd or Soledad Canyon Rd Trailheads to the Sierra Vista Trail. There is also a short access trail off of Dripping Springs Rd about 1/3 mile after you pass the cattleguard that will pop you out onto the lower portion of the loop (NW corner on the map here - where the start/stop icons are).

The trail itself is well built and pretty smooth and fast. The cutoff in the middle gives a nice opportunity for a figure-8. This is a great trail for introducing new riders to mountain biking, and I've ridden it with kids as young as 8 who had a great time.
