“Mostly rideable, technical loop full of rocks and roots, starts off on the fire road and ends on the West Side Trail.”— Michael Doyon
Overall, it's fairly flat with a few nice views. Do not expect this loop to offer a smooth flowing cross-country ride. There will likely be some hike-a-bike involved for all but the most experienced riders. Keep in mind that rocks get slippery when they are wet. It's best ridden on dry days.
The fire road will run along the side of the pond (which will remain on your right). You'll enter the woods via singletrack at the far end of the fire road and the majority after remains singletrack with some stretches of doubletrack. The loop itself is full of 6-8" rocks that will make it difficult for many beginners. It's a relatively short loop but offers a great workout and challenge to those who push their limits.
There are several sections that appear impossible or too dangerous to ride and may result in some hike-a-bike. Know your limits and wear a helmet.
