This is a fairly easy loop starting and ending at McGhie's Bike outpost. Trails are in very good condition, with some big rocks and tree routs. There are also some sections that are very tight. If you never did this loop before, leave a little earlier than you would normally do in order to give some extra time to yourself for a break and take some pictures along the way. Scenery is desertous, mountainous and beautiful. WARNING: "Black Velvet" section is extremely rocky.
