This 18 mile loop starts at Mulberry Gap and begins with the largest but most gradual climb on the day. Once at the top of the dirt road climb the loop continues into Bear Creek Trail, followed by Pinhoti 1 and finishes on Pinhoti 2 Trail. All three trails have plenty of sustained descents with a few short climbs scattered throughot. The ride finishes on a short segment of dirt road that rolls up then down to Mulberry Gap.

Rode the trail on may 28th heavy rains made the driveway to the trailhead unsafe for a normal car. Bad mud and clay everywhere and the creak as running hard. But it was still a good ride
