Some Mud - Wet today from all the rain with a few slick spots but overall pretty rideable considering all the rain. History

Getting forecast...

A nice mix of tight trail and fast, flowy singletrack.

Overview

The multi-use loop is a flowing 19-mile series of trails through various terrain and grades. There aren't many challenges, but the frequent ups and downs will keep you working.

Description

Start on the Blue Loop where it leaves the north side of the parking lot. This original loop is still the longest (10 miles) in the network and provides access to all the other trail loops. You'll encounter short climbs early for a nice warm up.

At the first intersection, head right onto the Red Loop (1.5 mi) for a few long but gradual descents and climbs that returns to the next corner of the Blue Loop. A section of rolling climbs leads to a long downhill stretch as the singletrack meanders around the north boundary of the trail network. Eventually, the trail will return back to rolling terrain with short hill climbs.

When you come to it, take the Orange Loop (0.7 mi) for a relatively level jaunt with a few sandy sections before it returns. Continue south through the twisting and rolling singletrack to reach the Pink Loop. This is the second longest (2.1 mi) loop and provides the most varied terrain as many sections are tighter with more turns in comparison.

Once back on the main Blue Loop, continue west through the twisting and rolling singletrack to reach the Yellow Loop. There's not anything particularly unique about it, but it does add another 1.6 miles of easy pedaling to the mileage count. You'll get a slight descent back to the Blue Loop.

Less than a mile ahead, turn onto the White Loop (1.3 mi) for plenty of short, punchy climbs and descents mixed in with some tight corners. Follow this up with the nearby Black Loop (0.7 mi) before starting to head to the north on a steady climb.

Before the Blue Loop reaches the Green Loop, the trail drops to the bottom of a depression and heads back up the other side. The Green Loop (1.2 mi) is a nice addition to the end of the ride. It starts with a gradual downhill with some sweeping curves that allow you to build and maintain speed quite well. This loop doesn't contain nearly as many tight corners as some of the others, so it seems a bit faster. After that, continue north on the Blue Loop to reach the parking lot where you began. Total trail length (as of 2018) is 19.1 miles.

Only did 6 out and back but what I did was a fun ride. Nicely maintained. Pretty tight for the first mile but opened up. Just off 127 worth a stop. 6mi
