Description

The loop starts and ends at the main trailhead, just opposite where the hiking trail branches off. The west end has some great overlooks of Little Appleton Lake and also provides great access to/from the Appleton Lake campground area. The trail flows best when ridden in the counter-clockwise direction.

Rode this loop twice with novice sons ages 6 and 9 and they had a blast. Flowed well and nothing too scary but "enough" variation to keep them enga… 4mi
