Overview

This loop is mainly an access route to the upper trails of the ranch. Mostly on gravel ranch roads with a bit of singletrack and a couple of bridges.

Description

From the trailhead sign, continue down the gravel farm road. The gravel road forks just before a cattle guard, continue straight over the first cattle guard and take the next cattle guard 30 yards on your right.

Look for the large yellow arrow attached to a red cattle guard about 400 yards from the trailhead and begin following the yellow arrows. Most yellow arrows are attached to posts and made out of painted rebar. Continue up the gravel road after passing over the second cattle guard. As you approach a ranch house, look for the trail off to the right just before another cattle guard leading to a Ranch house. There will be painted yellow rocks on the ground.

Before mile one, you'll leave the woods and circumvent a pond, first riding over another cattle guard next to an old cabin. After crossing one of two bridges, you'll begin to leave the pond area behind by biking up a cattle lane. At the end of the lane, look for another yellow arrow pointing left mounted on another cattle guard post.

In about 200 yards, you'll see an old hay barn on your left, painted yellow rocks, and a large yellow arrow pointing right. GO STRAIGHT HERE! You'll cross a cattle guard and continue into the next open field before picking up the gravel road to return to the trailhead.
