Loop on the Northern side of West Bragg Creek Parking lot. Out on Whitetail/Braggin'Rights to a Merlin Lap then up Reconnect to descend on Long Distance. This loop is also fun the other direction. Though Merlin is most fun done counter clockwise.

A few patches still drying up, some new drainage being worked on, but for the most part dry. New rock sections up from the bench are fresh, best to walk them to not undo the work being put into them until they fully dry out.
