Trail Review(s)
Rider - Eric
This is an easy trail.  However, there is a ton of vertical to climb.  From HWY 6 riding it as we did there was 5,565 feet of elevation gain (part of the loop was closed so we did an out and back). I really enjoyed this trail.  We had friends tell us that it was good, but something always came up.  Well, it was worth the wait!  It is not technical.  It is long, smooth and fast. If you park were we did, you start with a pretty big climb.  It is very rideable, but it is still a big climb.  If you hit it when the loop is open, it would be less miles, climbing and overall work.  It was a trail that could be done in either direction, starting from any of the three trail heads.
Would you ride again?
Yes
Any suggestions?
Make sure you can to the full loop.  You can also avoid some of the climbing by parking at a different trailhead.  The other trails heads have nice new facilities.
