This trail was a specific request by the Department of Conservation so users could gain access to the Caroline Sheridan Logan Memorial Wildlife Area. Currently, the Wildlife Area is foot-traffic only. The northernmost part of this little loop roughly follows the boundary. So, as always, it's important for cyclists to remain on designated trails within the Conservation Area.
The loop can be ridden in either direction. Clockwise travel will give you steeper climbs and longer downhill sections (compared to the climbs). One small area in the middle of the loop could use some benching. Riding clockwise will mean that one can coast down through this section.
If climbing isn't your thing, riding counterclockwise offers more fun. The less finished section in the center will offer a little challenge but the downhill rewards will be obvious once you see what's there.
The west side of the loop is very pretty as it climbs toward the Wildlife Area. This section is heavily benched on a steep hillside providing ample room to maneuver when riding it downhill. Near the high point on the east side, the only scenic overlook for this specific trail peeks through the bluffs to the west. One can even see a little bit of Kansas during the winter months.
Accessing this trail from the Logan's Run
trailhead is the most direct way (and most fun) to get to it. Most riders use Logan's Run
from the Sunbridge Hills Conservation Area
