“The Pasture Loop is a natural surface trail connecting Slaughterhouse Loop and Power Station Loop.”— Ernest Rodriguez
This trail will dump you out back on the Pasture Loop, turn right and follow the tree line. The Power Station Loop trailhead will be on your right. Make sure you take the second trailhead which will make you do the loop clockwise. About 2/3's into the loop there are some table top jumps.
Exit this loop back on the Pasture Loop away from the trash incinerator property, take a right fork up to and cross Furnace Road and do the Apple Orchard Loop (either direction is equally fun).
Cross back over Furnace Road and back onto the Pasture Loop. You'll soon see the equestrian center and you've completed most of the trail.
