The Pow-Mow Sweetness loop is a great way to see the mountain and enjoy almost all that Powder Mountain has to offer. From the climbs through the Aspens and Firs to the flow of Picnic...this loop has it all.

The trail is a fantastic single track almost all the way. The only time you ride on a dirt road is coming out of the bottom of Dr. Dozen at the Hidden Lake.

Even though the loop is 18 miles with some nice elevation gain, the climbs are nicely spaced so it is not a big-ass grind.

Take a backpack with your gear and water because you will be out there a bit.

      Switchbacks are very silty. Uphill travel through the switchbacks is a little challenging; loss of traction can be an issue.
