Braggin Rights is a fun bit of singletrack that leads out to connections with the south end of Long Distance, and Merlin View, Reconnect, Telephone Loop. It's a full bench cut that twists and turns all the way out to the junction with Merlin. The climbs and descents are very much like all the other West Bragg trails. Note that there is a LOT of two-way traffic between the parking lot and the junction with Long Distance. Expect to see dogs, strollers, families walking with little kids, runners, etc., especially in that first section. If you want some alone-time, go very early or very late in the day.

Access Info

This trail can be accessed from the NW corner of the main parking lot.
