The 7.3 mile loop, more challenging than the Loyston Loop, is geared toward intermediate trail users. There are more dramatic features that will allow maximum biking fun while remaining pedestrian friendly.

Access Info

Hwy 61 E., left on Park Road, right on Forgerty, left on Fox-Mill Creek. Right on Ridge Circle, left on Loyston Point Road. Use Loyston Point Recreation Area in Google Maps. Trail is located of the Loyston Loop

       Fun trail! Lots of gravel type surface. Made for an interesting ride w my rear brake getting weak... not terribly technical at all. Lots of jumps that made it fun. I will go back if I’m ever up that way again!

       Super flowy and fun! Some nice “mound” jumps and small tables. Some fun rock hits on the side as well. Trail can be ridden either direction and in all types of weather. There is a picnic table about halfway around to take a break a refuel.
