“A traditional loop, bailing just after Water 2.”— Riden Fool

Using the overlay you can read about each trail included in this loop.
You still get that long, heart-thumping climb at the start and many traditional favorites like Off The Lip (OL) and Karaway (KW) while keeping to a tighter schedule.
This route is also great if you want to take a couple of rides with a break in between. Ride this loop first and pick up other trails after lunch.
History & Background
This is the second oldest MTB Ranch in Texas. Nearby Bluff Creek Ranch at Warda is the oldest.
As told by Grey Hill, the Fofenique Indians were relocated near here at Camp Fofenique. A trail on the ranch bears the name to commemorate this historical tidbit.
(all in jest, Campho-phenique is actually a cream for sore muscles).
