“Albion Hill's free little brother.”— Trevor Miller
Family Friendly The Palgrave Forest is a great family system as there are some terrific single and doubletrack trails. Although it's hilly, there isn't anything overly technical here.
Get a good little stretch going on the doubletrack leading out from the parking lot, and you'll be out of your saddle for much of the rest of the ride. You'll quickly come to a fork in the path, where you'll want to hang a right at the "9" marker on the singletrack option - this is Boxed In.
After only a couple km's, which feel like a never ending roller coaster ride, you'll be dumped out onto 27 - 26 Connector, which intersects with The Box Loop. Keep straight on here and enjoy a nice, easy pedal to Duffy's.
This web of awesome will leave you pretty disoriented as you'll become sure that you have somehow looped backwards and are heading in the completely opposite direction.
Once you've splashed a bit of water in your face and recovered your bearings, cross the doubletrack to the home stretch. Zimm follows the MO of the loop and keeps the blood pumping with some great, quick downs and fast, hard ups. Hang a right on the doubletrack and head back to your car, or my suggestion - pull a U-ey and do it in reverse!
