The loops are on Forest Service roads approved for grooming by the USFS. Many options for packing singletrack off of this route are available.

There are many route options and can be ridden in either direction. Many singletrack options can be packed in as well with snowshoes, skis, or fat bikes. There are also many places to park and this ride can start at any access point.

Eventually, there may be a gate on Haul Rd at the beginning of this route. From the parking area, head west on Haul Rd CR 132 West, turn left at 355.1A and ride the western loop clockwise (flows best this way). Follow 355.1A and continue on 355.1C.
