This is the most common way to ride Thunder Mountain. There is a small percentage of people that like to ride it as an out-n-back, which includes some good cardio and a couple hike-a-bike sections. This loop takes you up the scenic canyon on a paved bike path until you get to the Coyote Hollow Road. Ride up the dirt road to the top of the trail and then let her rip.

      Lot of up for a little down. Pretty and probably the best around but very x country if you are looking for a real black look elsewhere. Not sure where as this is my first ride around here.
