A challenging loop with steep drops and flow that only works at speed.

William Ganis

Overview

No ATVs or motorized vehicles, no horses, and no riding in wet conditions. Hunting is not allowed in the bike park.
Dogs: Off-leash

Description

The trail starts at the top of the Advanced Access Trail with a drop down (the trail crosses the Zulu exit) and then a quick climb. From here the trail flows into three small jumps and then winds through some walls of small valleys resulting from strip-mining.

Riders then follow a steep drop to the right. The trail skirts the shores of two small lakes and riders then climb into a section punctuated by some steep drops (saddles) with physics taking them from the tops of one small ridge to the next. A particularly fun section involves banking to-and-fro across the walls (not bench cut) of two small ridges.

Riders then come across a rock garden and then the biggest of the drops. After another climb on rockier and narrow track, two smaller saddles close out the loop, and riders can either make a quick turn to the right to return to the Zulu loop, or go straight into the flowing Zulu exit trail that eventually hooks up with the KA-BAR Trail.

Getting forecast...

Lots of smiles on this ride ... especially the final third ... for anyone cruising Interstate 70 with a mountain bike this place is DEFINITELY worth the stop. This is probably one of the best loops in the park, but there's a lot of biking given the amount of land. When I was here in October 2016 there was a lot more trail than signage, but they seem to be working on that. Nov 1, 2016
