Description

Picking up from the Coyote Run Nature Trail, you'll pedal up a fairly easy, rocky climb to a nice flat, clear-cut meadow. Enjoy the dirt ribbon for a few seconds before the rocks and roots are back.

More quick ups and downs will bring you past a campground and across another creek. You'll make your way through a short bit of dirt singletrack before hitting a fairly steep, loose, rocky climb. You continue up and around through dirt and staggered rocks past the park water tower.

Now you get a nice stretch of dirt downhill followed by a rocky downhill, spiraling down into a rock littered section of trail following a natural drainage that quickly turns back upwards. Repeat this roller coaster ride three more times with longer uphills and downhills.

Finally, you cruise down the last rocky descent, coming out by the park road to a much gentler, flatter section of trail where you can bail to the parking area or continue onto the Camp Creek Loop.
