“Good mix of switch back ups and downs.”— Chance Lehman
Electric Mountain Bikes Allowed
This loop has a good mix of switch back ups and downs. The short downhill run to the powerlines is superb! A typical resting point is under the powerlines with views of the lake on the right and BCWT on the left.
After a slight decline under the powerlines turn left into the woods and under the PitBull run jump structure (watch your head). Now begins the almost 1/2 mile of switch back climbs out of SOS and back onto the Ranger main loop.
Part of the Big Cedar Wilderness Trails.
