Overview

This loop is made up of awesome trails that feature a little bit of everything terrain-wise. There are a few viewpoints along the way, but nothing to write home about. Easy parking accessibility and camping nearby.

Description

You can do this lollipop route in either direction. Most people go counter-clockwise (as mapped) which gives you a super technical descent to start heading down Cedar Creek Trail #457, followed by a long, grueling climb back up Fifteen Mile Trail #456. The descent can be less technical going down #456 in the clockwise direction, and is mostly forested.

A great ride with a long climb, great views and a fun descent. It can be reached from the Underhill Campground, but that adds several miles. 11mi — 3h 00m
