A locals' favorite loop, this ride starts and ends from the Strawberry Butte Lookout road. It rides well in either direction, but counter clockwise is recommended. Expect the ride to last 1.5 to 2 hours for a moderately fit rider.

 NIce variety of flowy single track along High Road and North Fork of Maupin and fun descents along North Fork of Strawberry with true single track along Middle Earth with New Zealand like rock formations to weave and drop through with outstanding views of Shingle Butte and Saddle Mountain and nice moderate climb along Strawberry Creek coming up all on public land.
