Description

The Advanced MTB Loop at Preddy Creek Park has longer and steeper climbs/descents than anywhere else in the park. It's a nice mix of tight corners and faster sections that never get too broken up. There are quite a few log crossings and two of them are tall with a tricky approach. This is all tight singletrack, if you have wide bars you'll need to weave them between a few trees to avoid catching a bar end.

Quite a few fun features exist on this trail. These include bermed turns, deep gullies that g-out your suspension, a log ride, log crossings, short ladder bridges, pump track like rollers, short rock gardens, a 3ft boulder to drop off of, small creek crossing, and mildly technical climbs. There are also two short optional extensions in the trail. One dips in and out of a gully as you follow it downhill. The other has two short bridges into a long bermed turn that finishes up with bottoming your shocks out through a gully.

After this gully, there is a small creek jump! However, I don't recommend using it now. It was great when first made, but the approach is now awkward with rough roots, and the jump is worn down.
