This is a variation of a popular loop that eliminates climbing UP Braggin' Rights. It ends up being a great warm up to get to the Merlin trail head rather than grinding up Braggin' Rights from the parking lot while dodging people coming down Braggin' Rights.

The light snow means that some of the roots are a bit slick, but good for fatbikes right now.
