This trail doesn’t necessarily have to be part of a loop. Once at the bottom you can carefully work your way down to spencer loop through ticket to ride and cut half way into Eh-Line. Shouldn’t pose a problem if you yield to other riders.

Lovin' all these new trails in Anchorage, blessed to have MTB'ing moving in this direction up here. Haven't read the IMBA book, but this is trail is fairly pedestrian with mellow features. Closer to a green than black.

Not a black line either, would rate it as a blue, but it’s fun

This is not a black by any means, it‘s super easy and definitely closer to Jeff‘s Whoop Whoop than Dig Deep

Amazingly fun ride. Agree that this may be easier than Jeff’s.
Note: This trail has to be part of a lap, ticket to ride is one way uphill.

Another nice flow trail similar to Jeff Whoop Whoop (JWW). I'd say this is closer to a Blue than a Black trail. It's a little more narrow with tighter berms on looser dirt. It's probably easier than JWW because your not able to go as fast and the jumps are much smaller. And the bottom is pretty flat.

Trail is wet and slippery! Try not to drag your back tire through the lower steep sections.
