Can be ridden either direction, but description is CCW. Mostly easy loop on the West side of the park. With a little bit of tech, chunk, and flow but nothing too technical. Start in the parking lot before Peavine Fails Road and ride on Terrace Dr past the lakes to the entrance to the Lake Trail. Follow the Lake Trail to Rattlesnake Ride and on to Mr Toads and onto Foreplay. Climb Johnson's Mountain. The hardest part of the ride is in this section climbing after the bridge. Cross Peavine Falls Road onto the BUMP trail to Centipede. Follow Centipede to Jeckyl & Hyde. Turn left down Jeckyl & Hyde to Peavine Falls Road. Cross the road and take Mr. Toads back to the parking lot.
