Overview

An easy loop for beginners or a good warm-up for a longer ride.

Need to Know

Make sure you don't drop off the downhill to the Lake. Stay on top of the ridge.

Description

This loop ride can have heavy foot traffic and minimal roots. Overall, this is a pleasant and easy-going ride that provides the the simplest, non-committed route at the Green River Trail System.

To start the ride, head out on Lakeshore Trail by passing all of the turn-offs for Rex Trail and Eddie's Loop. There are a number of small wooden A-frames that are scattered to let you warm up your handling on a level, smooth trail.

Take the Beginner's Bypass left at the junction and do not drop down the DH hill. You'll find a 16' skinny as you make your way to the other side of the ridge. Bear left and continue until you rejoin the Lakeshore Trail that heads back to the parking lot with some nice, flowing, smooth trail.

Boom. Your first mile at the Green River Lake Trail System.
