I made this a Black diamond because of some of the technical features. However most intermediates can do this loop with no problems but may have to hike a few spots.

This is a fun and very popular route.

There is a fee of 6.00 to park in the lot.

Starting from the Little Scraggy parking area.

This trail has rock features you can play on, fast swoopy downhill, some tough climbs, stream crossings and lots of tree cover. If you are an intermediate or above rider, you will probably like this route a lot.
