Want some technical riding but don't want to be out for too long? This short loop will pack in rock armoring and rock gardens, techy climbs, traversing, and descending. You can also ride this either direction - do both and see which way you like better Start at the Teacup Trailhead on the south side of Sugar Loaf. Begin climbing up Teacup towards its intersection with Thunder Mountain. Hang a left and continue west. At the intersection of Andante and Thunder Mountain, make your choice and continue on. Andante is a smoother pedal across the base of Thunder Mountain, whereas Thunder Mountain Trail will climb to a high point and descend no matter which direction you decide to take. Return to Teacup and back to the parking lot.
