Conditions


Minor Issues 70 days ago
Mostly Dry - Horse riders have left mounds of crap everywhere. Seasonal closure trails are being destroyed by horses. Someone has been placing loose logs on most corners making it a very unenjoyable ride. Wear long pants as Nettles are in full growth. History

Getting forecast...

A nice relatively flat path that flows through the trees.

Description

This is the longest loop at Whipple Creek Park.

This trail map starts at the southern intersection of the South Ridge Trail and North-South Connector. Head west. It will be a packed gravel and dirt mixture, and you'll start rolling through the trees. On the west end, you'll come to an open prairie with a picnic table. (Before the prairie is Burl Cutoff, a short-cut on the right. This takes the end off the South Ridge Loop.)

Right after the picnic table is a short descent. Keep to the right to stay in the loop. You'll pedal back through the trees with the Whipple Creek down below on the left. (There are several pigtails that cut through on the right. If you want to hit the single tracks or 45th Parallel this is where you can pick them up.)

At the intersection hang a right, making your way south to connect back to where you started.
