“A steep trail both directions!”— Michelle Shuford
Once at the top, the loop, which runs clockwise from this direction, is fairly easy with at least one skill feature (a wooden bridge). Once around the loop, there is another steep climb that brings you to a beautiful view of Lake Chatuge.
There are some tight turns up top and then you come to another skill feature, a deep log crossing. Then let the descent begin and hope your brake hands are in good shape!
