This loop begins at the parking area above Empire Logde on Mid Mountain trail. Empire Link provides connectivity between the Mid Mountain Trail and Ontario Ridge. The trail begins with a fun descent through a forest of aspen and pine. Once you pop out of the trees, the trail dives down the hillside through a series of switchbacks. The trail contours around the hillside to climb back up TDS Ontario By-pass.

 This is a fun downhill. The trail isn't as worn as Mid Mountain, but the rocks and roots aren't too much of a challenge. The uphill return is relatively easy technically and endurance-wise, especially if you skip the Tour de Suds loop at the end, then most of the return is on the Mid Mountain trail.
