95% singletrack with great views of the Black Hills from the rim of limestone cliffs. Difficult climbing with technical sections and switchbacks to challenge intermediate to advanced riders.

There are a few different ways to access Victoria's Secret C-Cup. One way is to take the Victoria Lake Road Parking Area Connector to the Victoria Lake Loop 15 trail and ride it north through a canyon until you reach the point where Victoria Lake Loop 15 and Victoria's Secret C-Cup overlap. This way is scenic, easy singletrack, and, overall, slightly downhill. If it has been a wet spring, this section of Victoria Lake Loop 15 can be muddy, but if it is dry, it is a great way to get to Victoria's Secret C-Cup.

Another way to access Victoria's Secret C-Cup is via the trail labeled Victoria's Secret B-Cup. This trail starts out with approximately 1/4 mile of nice singletrack climbing but then pretty quickly transitions to dirt doubletrack climbing. If the Victoria Lake Loop 15 trail through the canyon is muddy, Victoria's Secret B-Cup trail is an okay option but it is not as enjoyable.

After taking Victoria Lake Loop 15 trail through the canyon, you'll make a couple of shallow and sometimes dry stream crossings. Use the MTB Project mobile app to make sure you turn right at a fork in the trail to get onto Victoria's Secret C-Cup. The standard way to ride Victoria's Secret C-Cup loop is counter-clockwise. You can ride it clockwise but doing so leads to some steep climbing sections and less flowy downhill.

You'll do a fair amount of climbing at the beginning to take you to the top of the limestone cliffs. Along the rim, you'll encounter some rocky, mildly technical sections. After leaving the cliff rim, enjoy approximately one mile of flowy downhill. Approximately 1/3 of the way around Victoria's Secret C-Cup you arrive at a steep downhill marked with a "Danger" sign. There are a couple sections of this downhill for which novice and intermediate riders may need to get off their bike. At the bottom of the descent, turn right onto a 2-track dirt road and follow it to a stream crossing.

Immediately after crossing the stream get back on the singletrack and start climbing again. You eventually arrive at the Bald Hills which are so named because they are treeless. Turn left onto a doubletrack dirt road. At the far end of the Bald Hills, you enter the trees again where Victoria Lake Loop 15 and Victoria's Secret C-Cup overlap. Take a left at this intersection to complete the loop.

Amazing views and better riding. Very technical that will give any rider a run for their money. Rock Climbing type will be drooling at the exposure. — 1h 00m

Victoria's Secret B-Cup and Victoria's Secret C-Cup - Great trails but dirt road climb in the middle of C-cup is pretty much hike-a-bike. 12.9mi
