Welcome to the Education loop
A great place for beginners and kids to learn mountain biking. This loop has it all. Double Track on Telephone Loop with Undulating terrain which turns onto a quick short punchy climb on Snowshoe hare with a few roots some roots to navigate through (both up and down) and a really fun easy downhill flow on Demi-Tel reconnecting you back onto Snowshoe hare for a few different turn styles to practice cornering, follow it straight down past whitetail into the parking lot or turn left at whitetail to take you back to Telephone loop for another lap!
