Overview

This loop is easily accessible from town and is a good sampler of the local singletrack if you're trying to get in a shorter ride.

Description

This loop can really be ridden in either direction and has some steep sections either way. Several places offer fun roots and rocks. Unfortunately, there are some places on the last part of Rockhouse Trail has some places that stay muddy long after the rest of the trail has dried. If you run into that and decide to turn around it's still a fun out-and-back. Or if you want to keep going, just be ready to intermittently get off and walk a few sections to keep from rutting up that part of the trail too badly.
