Description

Leave the parking lot for the Intermediate Loop and ride the entire blue-blazed trail clockwise. Next, head back through the parking lot to ride the Parking Lot Connector, dropping over the hill, and heading left through the Rock Garden Connector. This continues on to the Baby Doll Head Trail. Ride this trail clockwise returning to the beginning.

At this point, head left onto the Kiosk Connector crossing the leaf pile access. Make a righthand turn, just before reaching the Nature Trail, following the Kiosk to Lochloosa Connector to the Parking Lot Connector. Make two quick right turns onto the Parking Lot Connector, riding it uphill, across the access road to just before reaching the Rock Garden Connector intersection again.

From there, make a left on Lochloosa Trail following it through the switchbacks, across the access road to the Nature Trail. Make a left onto the Nature Trail then right, crossing the creek. Turn left onto the Border Trail (heading counter-clockwise). Cross the park road, continuing back onto the Border Trail crossing the Nature Trail. Head left onto Tres Puentes, heading clockwise, and ride to the end.

Take a left to return onto the Border Trail, passing over skinnies, crossing the Nature Trail five times before heading down a switchback through the graveyard turn and up the goat path, making a right to continue crossing the gas line. Here, make left on Just .43 riding the loop clockwise.

Continue left again onto the Border Trail, crossing the grassy gas line and ending where the Border Trail begins. Head left over the creek, and left again, back onto the Nature Trail, crossing the gas line at the entrance to the Expert Trail.

Ride the entire Expert Trail back to the start and turn left onto the Nature Trail. Look for a right onto Cinnamon Run, where you'll cross the gas line and continue on to end at the Nature Trail and the entrance to Even Flow. Ride along Even Flow, clockwise, and make a left on the Nature Trail back toward the start. Look for a left that will head toward the football field and return to the parking lot.
