Park in the gravel lot next to the soccer fields, then cross the street to the trail. The trail is marked and obvious.

Overview

A great ride to see some of the best trails this system has to offer.

Description

Beginning on the Chesley Creek Loop and climbing Twin Lakes, climb Crawford Hollow to McFarlane. McFarlane is a blast going this way with plenty of places to take a breather. Once you arrive at Bryson Hollow, you begin a fun downhill to cross over just past Senior Rock.

Continue to descend Twin Lakes where you left off. If you want, you could climb up the other side of Crawford Hollow and enjoy going down the Crawford you had already climbed. Anyway, head back down to the Chesley Creek Loop for a cool down back to the beginning.

For added distance to this loop, take your pick of smaller connectors.
