Primarily doubletrack trail/old roadbed loop that is grassy in some parts. I think riding clockwise might be best because you have a longer descent that has some waterbars you can play around with. Once you reach the bottom, there is a bridge over Poplar Lick Run and you follow the stream through some nice scenery most of the way back to the start of the loop.

Blaze color: Purple
