“A large loop in the center of the Tanasi trail network.”— Kevin Hall
Begin at the Ocoee Whitewater Center and ride Bear Paw Loop. About 0.7 miles after starting Bear Paw Loop, if riding counter-clockwise (0.3 miles if riding clockwise), you'll reach the start of Chestnut Mountain Loop Trail.
Ride away from Bear Paw Loop for 0.2 miles to where the actual loop section of the trail starts. Go right and begin the long loop.
After 2.9 miles, you'll pass the entrance to Thunder Rock Express trail on your right. Stay left to continue Chestnut Mountain Loop. After another mile or so, you'll pass the entrance to West Fork trail on your right. Stay left to continue.
You'll eventually reach the start of Quartz Loop and then 1330 Bypass trail. Continue right to the next intersection. In short order, you'll pass the entrance to River View Loop on your right (stay left) and 1330 Bypass on your left (stay right). You'll soon pass the second entrance to River View Loop on your right, so stay left to continue back to the start of the main loop and back down to Bear Paw Loop to return to the Ocoee Whitewater Center.
Many sections of this large loop are used in the Black Bear Rampage 40 mile race.
