A wonderful climb and descent that is worth the effort.

The parking area on the map is on School grounds. Arriving on a Saturday morning the gate to enter the parking area was closed. There is a large public parking lot across the street next to a soccer field. You can not see the trail from the lot. There is some high grass across the street and the trail is just on the other side of it. You'll see a dirt path, across the street, that crosses the high grass and leads you onto Chesley Creek Loop.

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.
