Start at the shower house at Star Field and ride the Little Dipper in either direction. You'll pass two intersections while riding the Little Dipper Loop, both intersections connect you to either end of the Big Dipper Trail, which can be taken and linked up to the rest of the singletrack in the conservancy.

The Little Dipper is a flowing trail that will wind you through the trees and get your heart warmed up and ready for the other trails throughout the Conservancy.

Closed When Wet
Rider fee ($3/day) payable at multiple self-serve stations
Dogs Allowed
