 Disclaimer: I am an fairly new rider.

We wound up following this tight unmaintained single track; which was incorrect. When you come across what looks like a quad/atv trail, follow that. The GPS on my phone was accurate. Should have trusted it.
The trail turned into a gradually increasing downhill, not too rocky, fairly easy. Once at the bottom the uphill battle began. It was a wet rainy day, and maybe I'm just not used to it, but we basically walked back up. Slipping off everything (leaves, rocks, roots) made the uphill difficult.

It was fun, but rather short. If then single track was cleaned up and the loop was bigger it might be worth another go. As it was when we found it, we were not up for a second round.
