This is the hard loop, but I think it is relative to this trail system. The majority of the trail itself is actually easy, with a little bit of roots and a few spots that are difficult to get over. The expert designation probably comes from a few rock gardens and the expert level features that exist along the trail. But most of these features have a roll around option, or they are short. The most prominent expert feature are the tight bumpy rock gardens, but they are very short considering the long length of this loop.

Like the other loops, this loop has many emergency exits that allow you to cut off the trail and return back quickly. Look for signs on the side that say "Technical Feature" if you want to try out some of the skinnies, log rides, and some other interesting little wood features.
