Once in the State Park, the ride begins with a climb up the main park road on pavement. When you are almost to the summit, you'll peel off onto Little Summit Trail and finish the climb to the summit on singletrack.
From the summit, you'll descend to the North Trail which will take you around the outside of the park on a very lush and fun trail. The descent on the North Trail is one of the highlights of the loop. At the end of the North Trail hang a left on the Mt. Constitution Trail to soon connect with the Twin Lakes Trail. The Twin Lakes Trail is a little more heavily used and is not the nice, narrow singletrack found on the North Trail.
Take in the Twin Lakes before descending to Mountain Lake. Follow Mountain Lake Trail East around the lake, and then make sure to keep left onto the Cascade Creek Trail since the other option is hiking only. The Cascade Creek Trail is a fun descent back towards the start.
This loop can be made bigger or smaller depending on ability. Just be aware of the trail restrictions. If you plan to make any changes to the ride, please study the map and/or call the State Park.
