A locals' favorite loop in the Elkhorns, this ride is a loop beginning and ending at the parking area on the Strawberry Butte Lookout road. It rides well in either direction, but clockwise is recommended. Expect the loop to take about 1.5 to 2 hours for a moderately fit rider.

 Has it all. Great descents, leg burning climbs, great vistas and a few small log or rock drops if desired coming off Maupin Mill Creek divide and all single track except when crossing Forest Road. Beware the climb from Maupin into Mill Creek drainage. I know one local Mountain biking legend that ended up walking his single speed up that one.
