Description

The main access for this loop is on the Power Line #2 trail, 0.6 miles from the Granite Mtn. trailhead parking area. The trail itself is a bit more technical than others in this area due to sharp turns, undulations and some rock features, more so on the east side of the loop. It intersects several other trails along its route, making for many different options for ride lengths.
