Loop 2 begins at the bridge (located 1/2 through Loop 1). As you exit the bridge (going north), turn left and follow the trail along the river.
After a slight uphill, cross the bridge and then continue to work up the hill. A few washouts exist on the way - be prepared to lift that front tire or risk getting tossed over your handlebars!
90% of the way up the hill, stop and admire the giant, split rock (this is a good resting point if you are worn out).
Keep going up the hill. The trail turns slightly right, and at the fork, stay to the right. The loop finishes with a series of long switchbacks on the way back down, and connects with the start near the water.
