Great mix of technical single track and pathway. I prefer to do this trail as an out and back starting at Sideshow Bob and turning around at what is normally the beginning of 12 Mile Coulee (in this case it ends up being the end of 12 Mile Coulee) to follow the same trails back to the beginning of sideshow Bob.
