An oldie but a goodie! The PV-JP Loop has been a mainstay of the local riding scene since the '90s. This is a good ride for after work, as most hikers and horses only come out on the weekends. If you are going to ride it on the weekend, go early to avoid the rush and to keep out of the sun on the climb up Prairie View. Strongly recommend doing this one counter-clockwise.

 Good to go. Some snow patches on the Jewell side but lots of traction.

      Running awesome! Just a tad loose on the steep climb out to the Powerline/Stoney Trail.

      Running bone dry - very loose on the shale. Backside down to Jewell Pass is dry and running perfect on the roots - maybe a bit too dry the bike hits hard like on pavement on each bounce off the roots.
