Mixed single track and hardened double track. Fun climb on a shared use trail (hikers and guided hiking groups in the summer). Best to go up the northwest side of the loop and stop at the top of the large staircase then ride back the way you ascended. Bears during the early morning and evening hours!

Access Info

Park at Mendenhall Visitor Center mid parking lot (not at the end), two large rocks across the road mark the beginning of the connector trial.
