At the bottom of the trail, walk across the bridge above Wildcat Creek and continue right onto Wildcat Logging Road. There is a shallow creek crossing (rideable) where the road turns into Rapids Logging Road. Near the end of the road take a left onto Rapids Trail. This trail can have a lot of loose debris and stones in the downhill sections. Nearing Six Mile Creek, stay left where the trail splits to arrive at the creek crossing, which requires you to get your feet wet.
Continuing a short distance, stay left when reaching Six Mile Creek Logging Road, taking an immediate right uphill onto Pot Belly Pig Logging Road. This grinds mostly uphill until taking a left onto Pig Horse. Finishing Pig Horse take a right onto Spotted Horse Logging Road (Gate 5). Take a left onto Bombs Away, towards the end take a left onto Loopty Loop (unmarked) continuing straight onto Loopty Logging Road.

This uphill starts steep but lets off after a bit, reaching the clearing at the top, take a right onto Chain Loop. At the trail junction with Chainbreaker, ride Chain Loop counter clockwise for better flow.
