Overview

This loop covers select portions of Ridge Trail, Pipeline Trail, Window Trail, and Rock Oak Trail.

Description

Start with a short section of Ridge Trail that stays mostly level, and then divert left along the pipeline. Re-enter the woods on the right on the Pipeline Trail. This descent will be the most technically challenging part of this loop for a beginner, as there are some rocks to ride over or avoid.

Follow the Pipeline Trail through a variety of surface types until it heads down to the river. Instead, turn left on Ridge Trail, and then again on Window Trail when Ridge Trail turns to the river as well. Take the scenic Window Trail along the ridge, then take Rock Oak Trail when it branches off to the right. Ignore the Bear Wallow Trail and take Rock Oak Trail as it turns into a gravel access road and climbs up a hill. This will be the most demanding ascent. At the four-way intersection at the top of the hill, take Pipeline Trail back to the trailhead.

Riding along the Window Trail, taking some time to appreciate the nature. This is a larger drop than I'm willing to try.
