Start with a climb up the Miral Heights trail.
Do a lap or 2 of the Bluffs Loop ( usually done counter-clockwise ) and then descend the Sunningdale trail.

NOTE: It is very hot here in the summer.

Hints: The Sunningdale trail follows a steady, flowy gradient for much of its course, allowing riders to blast down at high speeds. Riders need to be aware that the trail is also very popular with local resident hikers and dog walkers who don't appreciate being startled by bikers traveling at supersonic speeds. Slow it down and please respect all trail users.

Trail is in awesome shape, and will be hero dirt after the next sunny day. The short steep section near the top is getting trenched out, but there is a reroute in progress. Some minor bench sluffing on the final stretch.
