NMBA 2015 End of Summer Ride - beginner - expect 2 - 2.5 hrs ride times depending on ability and group size. This loop has only one very short technical section on Chestnut Springs - Upper.

One has the slow climb to Dutch Alvin which then connects to Chestnut Springs - Upper followed by a short road stint before dropping Bear Gap Trail and then turning right on to Lingle Valley Trail. Climb up the road back to Coopers Gap Rd and follow to the Chicken Peter part and then reverse your earlier direction back.
