This is a 9 mile loop in the Schuerman Mountain/Carroll Canyon Area. I would rate the trail as follows: 5% beginner, 70% intermediate, 20% advanced and 5% expert, There are several sections on this loop an intermediate rider will walk due to the technical nature of the trail. There are also several spots an advanced rider may walk.

There are two areas on this loop that the rider will need to ride on a road to proceed to the next section of trail. The area between the Pyramid trail and the Old Post trail and the area between the Secret Slickrock trail and the Ridge trail.

This loop can be ridden in either direction. I personally like to ride it in the counter clockwise direction. If the loop is ridden in the clockwise direction the loop is best ridden using all the Scorpion trail to the High School, otherwise all riders will have to hike-a-bike up 100 yards of the Pyramid trail. There are numerous spots on the loop that the loop can be started such as the Recycle Center, Chavez Road or the High School.
