“A combination of three short loops to make a 4.6-mile beginner trail.”— Paul Thorsgaard
Electric Mountain Bikes Allowed
When combined with B Loop - Foul Pond the two weigh in at two miles of riding. The trail darts in and out of the tree cover. Riders will encounter two wooden bridges, about four feet in width. One leads up to one of the longer climbs at Salem Hills.
South of the pond, riders can pick up C Loop - Prairie Fire. This furthest out loop continues to travel in-and-out of the woods. There's one 10 foot bridge complete with railings to cross. Toward the very end of the loop, there's an optional 1.5 foot rock to ride over.
Continue clockwise on the trails until the B Loop ends on the A Loop. Turn right and pedal briefly until you see the start of Loop B again. Keep left for a short climb out to the parking lot or the start of A Loop.
