This is figure-8 shaped loop with lots of fun flowy singletrack downhill as payoff for the very reasonable investment you make in climbing. If you do each loop of the figure 8 in the direction noted, this route a) minimizes the distance on some of the more popular segments so it is suitable for those days when there is heavier traffic b) Uses the green trails for the initial climb which makes the climb a bit more bearable and generally keeps you away from downhill traffic while you suffer your way up.
A lot of riders seem to like going counter-clockwise on the north sub-loop of this figure 8. Ie. downhill at 30 km/hr on the easy and wide green trail (Telephone) and then grinding up several km of blue single track going northbound on the segment of Long Distance herein. I much prefer going clockwise and doing my downhill on the narrow twisty trail of Long Distance, but to each his own.
