Overview

This is a tidy loop that features fast singletrack, tight curves, lots of roots, and the only jump in the trail network.

Need to Know

There's a jump after the second hill on Old Forge Trail. Watch out for erosion, roots, rocks, and drops on the hill coming back on Old Forge Trail.

Description

From the parking area, the ride starts off with some nice downhill on Glen Trail (keep left at the split) then moves to Bridges Trail with fun berms and other tight turning sections. Head north on the Doctor's Creek Trail Connector and then keep right for the fast and tight curves and rooty drops on Doctor's Creek Trail.

Head over onto the Old Forge Trail, which includes two big descents and one climb. Keep an eye out for an optional jump on the right if you're looking to catch some air. After the longest descent, the trail connects back to the Doctor's Creek Trail. Head left and then left at the next intersection. Retrace your route back on the Bridges Trail. When you reach the Glen Trail, head back on the other side to finish the loop you started at the beginning.

Nice trails. Lots of elevation changes. Roots but not too many. Few obstacles that are avoidable. 4mi — 1h 25m
