This is a solid loop that feels like you're climbing and climbing and climbing. Good workout!

Start your ride at the alternate parking spot https://www.trailforks.com/poi/1924/ and then pedal up the River To Ridge Trail. Have your first heart attack while climbing Buckeye and then settle in for a long haul.
