The preferred route is to do the North Loop first, counterclockwise. This section is the more classic singletrack cross-country with a few light rock features, several short punchy climbs, and fun downhills. This is followed by the South Loop, also done clockwise. It begins with a creek crossing and a stout climb followed by about 3 miles of fun, flowy singletrack that is mostly a downhill with a couple small climbs and finishes with a 3/4 mile fast downhill that will put a smile on your face. Just past the bridge at the bottom you can take a left and go back to the parking lot or go straight and do it all again.
