Family Friendly Flat, smooth, and wide. But, you have to climb to get to it.

Description

One of the first dedicated mountain bike trails you'll encounter along the multi-use trail, Switchback Loop is relatively flat, smooth, and wide enough for two bikes to ride abreast for some of its length. Many riders use this trail as a warm-up or as a way to add a little more distance. The exit of this trail onto the multi-use trail sets riders up perfectly to access The Bluff, just a few hundred feet downhill. An excellent trail for beginners, but keep in mind that you must climb there from the Arrowhead Point parking area!
