The gold loop connects some of the most fun and flowy singletrack from all threeother designated loops in a classic mid-mountain traverse that offers lots of options to extend your ride. The loop rolls in both directions. Clockwise will climb the more technical sections, counter clockwise will descend the more technical sections.

 More signs near junctions or changes in direction. At the start, ended up on the gravel road versus 18 boundary since the entry was covered. At the pond, took some scouting on the trails to figure out where the Golden loop continued. We were trying to figure out the loop and another group doing the loop had the same problems with the app running too.
