Family Friendly: Short singletracks without much climbing or technical features makes for a fun afternoon for the family.
The Ponderosa Loop trail is a short singletrack trail that begins several loops at Eleven Mile State Park. The trail begins at the Coyote Ridge Parking Lot, just off of Highway 92. An entrance fee is required.
The loop can be ridden clockwise or counterclockwise. Heading north, the trail winds through rocks and pines, nothing technical. At mile 0.3 and mile 0.4 the trail intersects with the Aspen Loop Trail
. After this, the trail loops back towards the reservoir, intersecting the Midland Trail
at mile 0.6. From here, it leads back to the parking lot.
