This is an introductory loop to the trails at Dewey. This loop follows the flattest and least technical trails on the mountain.

Start by heading up the lodge. Bear left on candy land- a wide ski trail. Follow this out and around - you can add on the newer trails Monopoly and Boulderdash for additional mileage - and then connect with Operation.

Cut over toward the center of the mountain on Backgammon, which is the most technical part of the ride. Then finish on twister.

This route is suitable for children and beginners so long as they are comfortable with singletrack.
