Update

A fun loop trail that climbs up toward the Summit Overlook Trail before dropping back.

Matt Newman

Overview

Bikes are only allowed on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and only on the the East Loop and the Summit Overlook Trail that's accessed from the East Loop. The West Loop is foot traffic only, no bikes allowed.

Description

The East Loop is open to bikers to in the counter-clockwise direction on Wednesdays, clockwise direction on Saturdays, and closed to bikers on all other days. The trail is on the steeper side and gets most of its difficulty rating due to some challenging switchbacks found along the climb. Many riders will need to dismount on the way up.

In the CCW direction, you'll go through a few minor, undulating ups and downs to reach a small rocky creek crossing before beginning the climb to the top. In the CW direction, you'll pretty much just be climbing from the start. In either direction, you'll have the option to go to the Summit Overlook when you near the top to enjoy some great views.

It seems that the trail was originally designed for hiking, so it has some tight and technical switchbacks on the way up, and it makes for some brake-grabbing on the way dow. But in between the switchbacks and turns, you can build some serious downhill speed.
