A good place to start for experienced riders who are new to Three Stage. This route will lead you through a variety of different trails, both high and low speed. No major climbs or extended downhill sections, but you should get a decent workout. Connect the loop with a cool down cruise on the 6th Sideroad back towards the main parking lot.

Please note that these trails see a lot of traffic. If you notice that the first section is exceptionally wet or muddy, please do the trails a favour, head back to your vehicle and wait for a drier day.
