The Luge is a long climb to a gnarlier descent. It isn’t part of any official wilderness park but is a popular place to go for a ride due to it being a quick loop with a long downhill. There are lots of features, most with a ride around, but always be alert when descending because you never know what might be coming up on the trail. If you’re interested in an even longer ride there’s a section you can add as an out and back called Old Camp which can be accessed from the flag. The Luge is flowy, fast, and fun. This is a popular location for hikers and other cyclists so be courteous and cautious while riding here

If you wish to make the ride longer feel free to ride out to Old Camp which you can access from the flag at the top of the Luge. Just take a left down and you'll begin to climb once again. You climb for a while until you reach an intersection but continue to follow it left, downward into some trees, and you'll drop into Old Camp.
