Gunny Loop is divided into two sections on Trail Forks, but it it seldom ridden as only half. The first section, this section, climbs up from Little Park Road to the height of Little Park Trailhead. The tread is a moderately technical, sustained climb with something going on at all times. There are a lot of rock features that sap momentum if you let them, but can be a fun, technical challenge if you embrace the nature of this trail. This section goes past the Gunnector intersection and keeps climbing to the right and eventually gains the height of the First Flats. It then traverses around through a fun, moderately chaotic section of straight-edged rocks finally arriving at the Gunny Cuttoff doubletrack and the end of this section. If you continue on, you enter what locals call the "stopper" section of the Gunny Loop, which on Trail Forks is referred to as Gunny Loop (East)

Access Info

The Gunny Loop can be accessed off of Little Park Road at the Bus Turnaround, off of the Andy's Loop Cutoff directly opposite the top of Andy's Loop, First Flats and the Little Park Road Trailhead, the Gunny Cutoff doubletrack, the "stopper section" of Gunny Loop.
