This loop that essentially runs along the perimeter of the reservation. This route runs fairly dry year-round but can be hard to follow in the fall when leaves cover the trails. There is a bit of reservation road and some double track, but the majority of this 8 mile loop is fast and fun single track. Please take caution crossing Dover Road in the southern portion of the park.

In addition to a fun and flowy loop, this route traverses by most of the more challenging technical trails in the Reservation. Don't hesitate to try your skills on any of the black-rated trails. They will challenge even the very best advanced technical rider. Note, most black trails have a preferred flow direction. It's good to check out those trails on Trailforks before hitting them the first time.

 Good loop, but I wouldn't do again. It was good for giving a rider a small taste of what's here. But I wouldn't do the loop again due to how much dirt road and double/triple track there was. This place looks very cool.
