“A classic East End ride of mostly singletrack with some fun downhills and plenty of roots and punchy little climbs”— Bryan Midlam
- Keep the MTB Project mobile app handy as there are plenty of spur trails, intersections, and detours on roads to make navigating tricky.
- Beware of some of the sandy sections if you aren't used to riding in sand. This is not a trail for beginners and you'll often see people hiking and walking their dogs.
On the other side, follow the trail to the left and then turn to the right to follow Fosters Path. This trail will continue northward almost all the way until the loop begins to head back. Eventually, Fosters Path descends past Scoy Cemetery before arriving at a small parking area on Northwest Road.
Continue across the road to follow the Paumanok Path: Scoy Pond Connector as it parallels the distant pond. At the next intersection, turn left onto the Northwest Path which will take you all the way back to the end of the lollipop loop. Much of the climbing happens on the return leg, but there are still a few good descents to keep it interesting.
