Leg pumping goodness. Park at Howard Creek Horse Camp or at the Campground Entrance. Ride the Rackett Ridge Connector and up Racket Ridge, bonus points for not stopping Enjoy the solitude of the Perimeter singletrack and have a blast carving down Roemer (aka Boomer). Take a right at the bottom and head back to parking.

 Great for winter riding by avoiding Buck Mountain. Lapping Roemer, especially the upper and middle section, is a good way to add a few miles.
