“The longest loop in the park, this trail combines switchbacks, flowing trail, and a road. Follow the red shield blazes.”
— William Ganis
No ATVs or motorized vehicles, no horses, and no riding in wet conditions. Hunting is not allowed in the bike park.
Family Friendly: Generally flowing, nothing technical, a few short, steep hills; a great trail for developing skills.
This is GBP's longest loop; follow the red shield "Perimeter Loop" blazes. Starting near the main parking area, a trail of bench-cuts and bermed corners flows north through the forest before reaching a climb and then following a wider trail NW along the lake. The trail turns north to a long, flowing section punctuated by switchbacks; a climb brings riders to one of the park's tallest hills.
After a descent and some rollers, riders cross a bridge and then turn left. They follow along a pond, cross bridges and a short cobblestone section and then meander through the woods. After crossing another bridge, the trail passes over a few rollers and then climbs out to a right turn.
Here the Perimeter Loop joins the doubletrack dirt Moore Road that is followed for about a mile to a singletrack trail situated along the park's southern boundary. Take in gorgeous views of Stryker Lake before reaching the SW parking lot. The trail continues across the lot and follows short ridges with dips in-between. The trail then straightens out and leads to some whoop-de-doos before ending near the main parking area.
