5-8 hour loop through the mountains. Bring plenty of water and food. You can bail after the doing the first two bypasses (after coming down Bell), which will be close to the cars. You can also bail before or after climbing and descending Sunrise, which will require 5-7 miles of road riding to get back to start. Be mindful of other trail users on lost dog and other trails as it can be busy.

      Not sure this should be rated a black, blue perhaps, but no drops or anything really tricky, only tight switchbacks.
