The Little Kelly's loop is particularly difficult to navigate if you are unfamiliar with the area. This loop contains several hidden turns.
Start from the Buckskin Morgan/Hawley's parking area. Ride to the top of Buckskin Ridge and take the road to the left. From there, follow the road until you get to Ken's Corner trail. You will need to cross (jump) the fence in order to continue. Once you reach the bottom of Ken's Corner trail you will follow the fence line to the left. The rest of the turns are hidden in the trees and difficult to find. Please use caution while navigating this area.
Once you reach the top of Little Kelly's you will enjoy a long downhill section with several creek crossings. At the bottom is a small parking area. Some people will set a shuttle vehicle here so they do not have to ride their bikes nearly 4 miles to the top of Buckskin.
