The Loop trail is a long doubletrack trail that allows access to many of the singletrack trails at Horse Hill. Many hikers/runners/bikers utilize this trail, so please check your speed here and remember your trail manners!
While the Loop trail isn't that technical or steep at all, it does have its moments, and can be a really fun loop.
