Overview

This is a nice circumnavigation of the park that uses mostly intermediate trails. You'll get the brunt of the climbing out of the way early on before a rolling descent wraps things up several miles later. This loop will take you past a lot of singletrack options, so there is lots of changes to mix things up.

Amazing ride. Great flow on the downhill. Quite a grind getting to the top initially. Really rocky but that kind of adds to the fun of it.
