5.4 miles, runs clockwise, walkers/hikers route opposite. As a surprise to many, there are 103 directional signs in the total loop. The kiosk on the east end trailhead has a map, as does the trail page on dorba.org. Once on the trail, you'll also see "you are here" signs reflecting each sections name. Thursday nights are all level rides, no drop, and sponsored by Sun and Ski, come on out to try night riding. Most of all, ride like a kid again, it's a new experience to many.

East side trailhead has port-o-let, shade, water spigot (shower if you bring your hose), covered picnic areas with grills. Nice trail for night rides. Many local eateries for post ride, check out the pubs on Main Street if you're up for it.

       Just finished up a ride before noon today. It’s tacky with a handful of mud/water spots in the low areas.
