“A loop of the popular trails heading out from Gateway.”— Del Sharp
Electric Mountain Bikes Unknown
Make a left turn at the Entrada Trail marker. After summiting the two ledges, make a left turn at Vista Grande Loop. Stay on this trail and, eventually, you'll encounter a cairn close to the trail, this marks Lumsden Loop, and on your next pass you'll turn right about twenty feet earlier to descend Waterfall Down.
You'll pick up the familiar trail, again, continuing on to Vista Grande Loop until making a left at Dynamite Trail.
While none of the trails are overly difficult, there are enough fun features to keep this route exciting for riders of all abilities. There isn't much in the way of shade however, which can zap the energy of even the strongest riders.
