Description

Lytle's Loop is an easy flowing trail with small inclines and declines, small rock gardens and creek beds. The trail is mostly singletrack though there is some doubletrack found. It also contains two locations where the rider has to cross a paved road.

Watch out for hikers, dogs that are supposed to be leashed but at times are not, and other riders as the trail can be ridden in either direction.
