The northwest part of this loop is shared with equestrian riders. Be alert and ready to yield appropriately.
Some challenging singletrack for intermediate riders. There are advanced sections that can be by-passed that will extend your ride to 9+ miles. The trail is well-maintained by an active SORBA group and others. Still, there are rocky sections with interesting drops, plenty of roots to test your skills, and some technical stream crossings that could be daunting for beginners and some intermediate riders.
