Very mellow cruise loop. Can either be done as a loop either clockwise or anti-clockwise. Features include a beautiful hut at the South end to hang out in, and a teeter totter (ride around in place) near the Cokato Road end. Machine built, lots of bridges.

Access Info

Easiest start point is next to the old barn on Coal Creek Road. Plenty of room to park if you are driving.
