This optional .43 mile loop splits off from Tashka Trail approximately 9.2 miles from the South Trailhead
(traveling clockwise), and approximately 1.8 miles from the North Trailhead (traveling counterclockwise). This is a fast and dazzling little loop to either pump you up for the long ride on the Tashka Trail, or give you a last hurrah before heading to the North Trailhead to end your ride.
