A fast fun 8 mile loop connecting all the trails in the Traverse des Sioux park into one ride starting at the south end of the trail system. This is the standard route for local riders and group rides.

If 8 miles is not enough for you, do two or three loops which is a perfect training ride for the local race series.

Another popular option is to do this entire route and then add in a lap of trails E and F. With the way the smaller trail loops are interconnected, the combinations are almost endless.
