“A nice loop at Taconic Hereford (909).”— Matt Duke
The next trail is to the right and across the road from Tunnel. Once on that trail (Anthill), take a left at the first intersection to stay on it. This has two short and steep climbs, one being an exposed rock face. I highly recommend taking this trail down the other direction, it's a blast.
Once you get up to the top of Anthill, take a left up the fire road and grind up until you see an area with a couple of big puddles, and an entrance to doubletrack on your right. Head right, and up the little piece of singletrack. This will bring you to a point that you go back to several times. To the right, between two trees, is the entrance to Beaver. After going down Beaver, you stay right and climb back up the fire road to that same spot.
Then you'll head straight this time, down a short steep hill, then start the climb for Camp Trail. The descent on Camp Trail is worth the climb, and has a couple of spots that may be a bit much for a new rider. At the bottom of Camp Trail, you'll run into a "T" intersection, hang a left, and head back up to the fire road. Hang a left on that fire road, and it'll take you back to those puddles and that same intersection at the top of Beaver.
This time you'll head down that hill towards Camp Trail, but hang right onto the rutted doubletrack/road that is Horseshoe trail. You can take either the first or second left you run across to get onto the Horseshoe - Byk Head Connector.
Byk Head is next up, and starts essentially at the little rock outcropping you'll see. You'll grind up the climb, and be rewarded with arguably the best descent in the area. A novice rider can do it, but they may walk a few features. After Byk Head, you'll end up back on the fire road, and will take that back up like you're heading up to Beaver again.
This time you'll be looking for Timbuktu on your left, it's all the way up near Beaver. If you see those puddles, you went past Timbuktu by a little bit, turn around, it'll be the first right. This loop takes you down a portion of Timbuktu then stays right at an intersection to head up Burn Trail and back to the parking lot.
