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.

      Had a go at this March 9. Worked my way off the lookout and just into the woods before turning back. Very difficult going on fat bike.
