Description

The Bartram Red Loop throws it all at you, providing 10.4 miles of fun (and a little climbing). If you ride the loop counter-clockwise (as mapped), you'll take a right after the gate at the trailhead parking and follow the gravel road until you see the first waypoint marker on your left. The trail starts out with a 1.0 mile easy climb on the John Muir Trail, an old forest road that is grown over into wide singletrack in most sections.

From there, you'll ride mostly singletrack for the rest of the lap, with only a few short forest road sections. The loop ends with one mile of technical singletrack with short steep pitches, rocks, and roots, but nothing an intermediate mountain biker can't handle. The exit follows a 0.4 miles climb back up the parking lot.

When riding the loop in a clockwise direction, the first 0.4 miles downhill section is a complete blast with flowing turns and even a few jumps thrown in. And finishing with the super fast John Muir Trail is the icing on the cake for riding in that direction.

Just rode this system for the first time. The trail maintenance crew was working and they did a fantastic job of grooming this system. Very nice old school country folks that make you feel welcome. Its a great place to cruise for exercise, not very technical but loads of fun. The red loop has some rooty areas in the creek bottom which provide moderate challenges. Would stay out of the bottom areas after heavy rainfall due to flooding like any other low basin. My gratitude to those out there working! FUN FUN FUN ride! Sep 30, 2018
