This is another technical section of the Millers Pond Red Loop. It can be avoided by riding opposite direction on the gravel after the main loop. The best recommendation is to use this section as practice before attempting the bigger loop by combining it with the gravel trail to make a shorter circuit. Suggested riding direction is clockwise.

Access Info

Starts from the Millers Pond (Gravel) trail near the intersection with Millers Pond Red Loop. Ends at the parking lot off of Foot Hills Road on the right hand side of the entrance.
