Good Intro for first time riders to Daniels. This loop provides a good sampling of what Daniels has to offer. It also provides lots of options for more or less and easy to bail from.

      Trails are firming up and mostly dry (aside from the usual early season wet spots). Please allow extra drying time after rain events this time of year, otherwise good to go. reporter
