An awesome loop that is home to the aptly named, ridiculous DH section, "Wheel Breaker."

Description

Coming off of the Pine Tree Loop or the Explorer Loop Connector - 337B, the first half of this trail is a climb. After a short ride down a gravel road the fun begins.

The second half starts with a fast downhill with a few very large water bars. Once you've rested, there are a few steep, punchy climbs on the way up to Wheel Breaker.

Wheel Breaker is a scarily fast DH in the shade of a tunnel of rhododendron bushes, full of water bars to jump and roots to fly over. Be careful at the end because there is a big water bar about 15 feet to stop from warp speed.

On the left of the trail is Bent Creek. This is a nice place to stop and rest. Once you're done, head to the right, cross the smaller creek and go uphill.

Trail conditions were great. Mostly dry except for the normal small creek crossings. Some leaves on the trail but barely
