“This 3.4-mile loop rounds out the fun at Governors Creek.”— David McDowell
This loop is the longer of the two trails and it serves up some nice, short speed bursts as well as plenty of switchbacks and short climbs. There's also a small downhill rock garden and a jump section, both with clearly-signed bypasses.
Portions of the Challenge Loop are labeled Ghost Loop and Fox Loop. You can skip a portion of the Challenge Loop signed as Fox Loop by taking Fox Loop Return which is 0.3 miles.
