Lost Valley Loop is a roughly 9 mile ride out of the Fall Creek TH. Debates rage about route, but most people ride counter-clockwise so as not to miss the awesome descent on the McKenny Trail back down to Fall Creek. Thanks to trail work and re-routing over the past few years, this is now a year-round loop.

      Hero mud! Trail was wet and slippery. Use caution on the downhills. Pack dry clothes to drive home in.

      Trail is clear and running great. Hit it early (9am) and only saw one person when I was finishing the loop. Clear of trees and great dirt, with the exception of a little dry in the clear-cut areas.
