Adds the new 727 trail to a loop of Special K. Be aware that you need to climb the awful, steep part of Sulphur Springs twice.

 727 is in my opinion one of the best trails on moose mountain!
This year three new jumps were added to the bottom of the trail that make the trail even better!

      Covered with packed snow, a few icy sections, I ride with summer tires on a regular bike, no issues.

      Dusty and dry. The top part is a tractionless grovel down dry gravel and scree, but it's in great shape once it flattens out.
