The outer loop of the La Crosse trail system -- aka "Unicorn" which can be ridden in either direction. It is probably slightly less technical in the CW direction, but only marginally. (Most locals would say that CW is the way it is "meant" to be ridden. The CCW route can be found here: https://www.trailforks.com/route/la-crosse-outer-loop-ccw/) Use caution and yield when descending VISTA trail, as all other users (ascending riders and especially hikers) have the right-of-way.
