This is a 4.2 mile loop that can be ridden in either direction. If you ride clockwise there is mild climbing the entire trail mixed with two fun downhills, one with bermed corners. Counter clockwise the downhills are now climbs, but the trail is fast and flowy between them. There are two wooden bridges to cross, and an awesome tree section on the south end with bermed corners leading into it. There is a cut across in the middle that gives you the option for either a 1.8 mile short loop instead of the 4.2 mile long loop

Access Info

 In my opinion, the Epic Loop is some of the best riding in the Harmon Lake Park. It has a few punchy climbs and some fun, easy downhills. Not technical, really, but the most technical of all the riding in this park.
