“A nice and short option if you don't want to endure the entire Arnold Rim Trail.”
— Michael Town
This ride has very low traffic along a well-built singletrack with about 1.5 miles of forest road back to where you started. You start out on a paved multi-use trail for about a half mile. A short climb just past where you hit the dirt singletrack has a few technical switchbacks and then it's fun flowing turns between some narrow trees. Turn right onto the Equestrian Bypass Section
to complete the loop back to where you started at the Logging Museum.

Need to Know
There is a creek-crossing just after you turn onto the equestrian bypass that flows only into the late spring. Prepare to get your feet wet.
This is a fun loop if you don't want to do the entire suffer-fest of the Arnold Rim Trail
. This ride takes you from the White Pines Lake Logging Museum parking lot in a clockwise loop back to where you started. It does take you onto the Equestrian Bypass Section
which is legal for bikes so please yield to horses and use common sense.
There is a creek-crossing just after you turn right onto the bypass so be prepared to get your feet wet in the early spring months. This section has a few challenging switchbacks on the climbs and the descents, but the fun, flowing descents through the narrow trees are a blast.
