This is a great loop to help you find some of the best trails at Echo Ridge. Loop can be ridden in either direction except for Minor Threat. However, there is a new trail ( Divine Intervention) to the left at the bottom on Minor Threat that will take you to the top.

 This is the definition of XC. Not my kinda speed but for xc'ers it's the bee's knees. If your looking for sweet single track to send it on, I suggest minor threat to the shoe to switch back alley. More Enduro and quite fun. All around, evergreen does an immaculat job. If you ride around here, seriously consider donating by becoming a member of evergreen MTB alliance.

 5/29/2016. The main parking at the bottom of this loop has been closed by the private landowner. USFS is working to restore nearby parking. Current parking options.....after Rental Cabin office go right up to Switchback Alley unimproved TH (.25 miles). Parking for 4-5 cars. Or go left after the cabin rental office to roadside parking about 1/8 mile (1-2 cars) and ride back down to trail. Stay tuned for update.

 November 2017 - We built a mile of new single track that will become part of the Super Loop. Hopefully, we'll get two additional miles constructed in the spring of 2018. The new contiguous segments will be in the SE corner of the trail system.
