“A nice wide clean path. Straight up/down hill on one end. Back and forth on the other.”
— Mike Lenz
The Stone Mill Loop starts at the intersection of North-South Connector
and South Ridge Loop
. You can run it either direction, this entry is CCW.
At the intersection you'll head south on the North-South Connector
. It is a quick drop of 85 feet on a wide packed dirt and gravel path. At the bottom you'll see the hill to the south exit on your right (across the bridge).
Don't turn just head straight up into what look like a dead end path. Once you get there you'll make a hard left and start your way up the switchbacks.
Eventually, the path straightens out. Your total climb will be 95 feet. There are a few more rollers. When it opens up on the right you'll see a private meadow. This is the Everson family farm.
After getting back under tree cover there is a Y intersection (Everson's Cutoff
is the right fork). Stay left and you'll end up back where you started.
This completes the loop.
