NMBA 2015 End of Summer Ride - Intermediate long - expect 3.5 - 5 hrs ride times depending on ability and group size

Starting from Alan Seeger Natural area climbing Brush Ridge Extension, to Brush Ridge Trail, down Indian Trail (lower) then heading out across Beautiful Trail and descending Deer Tick Trail. From there climb the full length of Shitaka Trail to continue climbing Kettle Rd up to Peep Trail.
Now the fun begins as you drop Peep Trail and continue descending down Bear Gap Trail before making a right onto Lingle Valley Trail and going back up to Chicken Peter Trail.
Make left onto the Peep Trail to do the loop then a right onto Chestnut Springs - Upper and enjoying the downhill part of Dutch Alvin before reversing your earlier direction down Brush Ridge Extension
