This a multi-use trail open to the public (no waiver required). This loop is half double track road and half singletrack. The south side that connects to Moonlight Trail is singletrack. It is mostly pretty easy, but there is one gnarly rock section that is really hard to clean head east. If you are doing the loop CW, it is fun to drop down.
