This section loops around a large spring-fed pond with great scenery and swans in the summer. A beaver used to call this pond home, but she had no place to build a dam (no inlet or outlet stream) and in four years she had felled all the poplar trees (preferred food source and building materials) and had literally eaten herself out of house and home. This is Crazy Beaver Loop! There's a couple of climbs and technical downhills and a final ride through another set of technical trenches before exiting where a left at (17) will return you to the trailhead in about a quarter mile.
