10 mile loop taking in some of the hardest sections of trail in the park. Options to ride Enduro (harder) or Whiskey Town (easier) after Junker instead of The Ridge. Techy, trials warm up on T-bag and Ratcamp. flowy middle section of the loop with some hard climbs on KRT, 5 Gallon and Buzzard. Finishes with a grin busting descent from the top of the ridge through tight steep rocks, wide open loose sections and velvet singletrack to the parking lot.
