       This is an easy and fun trail that can be ridden multiple times per trip or you can branch off onto some of the other nearby trails.

      I find the loop to be enjoyable parking at the end of Forest Road 2 and then riding the trail in a counter clockwise direction. This allows you to end with the great view at the end of the trail just before dropping back down to the parking lot. Then rinse and repeat as needed.
