This is adventure riding. Trails are not maintained for mountain biking and conditions are variable. You will need to push your bike occasionally up steep, loose rock sections or carry it over down trees etc. No deep sand at least, so that's nice. There's fun riding mixed in too, and great views.

I've ridden the loop counter-clockwise but either direction is possible. Counter-clockwise from the parking lot: steep, difficult climb up the chokecherry ATV trail to intersection with Wildcat trail and Terrace trail. Terrace trail is a non-motorized trail, typically for hiking and horses (and cows). Please give hikers and horseback riders the right-of-way. The start of the trail, in the alpine meadow, may be indistinct but it becomes clearer as you enter the forest. Some singletrack through beautiful aspen groves, meadows and over creeks, although parts are hit hard by cows. Singletrack ends at the top of Forest Road 247 which makes for a fun, fast descent back to highway 12 (you can also go right at the singletrack-247 intersection and ride towards Meeks Lake). Ride the highway back up the hill to your car. It's a pleasant, short-ish road ride with spectacular views.
