Description

You can go left or right into the Pasture Loop, but once you reach the gravel road, you can go further south and meet up with the more challenging Slaughterhouse Loop (the old Slaughterhouse Loop is at the trailhead (yes, it was a real slaughterhouse). Do the loop and backtrack on the same gravel road uphill and take your first right. This trail will take you behind the old Dairy Farm building (soon to be the Equestrian Center stables.)

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.
