An easy intermediate mostly flow trail, much of it on old logging rail beds.
Can be ridden in either direction and often is.
Mud Lake Loop has a beautiful picnic stop at Deer Lake, with a tight and twisty gnarly section the locals call the Root Garden along the westernmost section.

And enjoy the newly built wooden extended walkway (at Mud Lake/Deer Lake/Toad Hollow intersections) developed and built by our Chain Gang and support by Provincial Park Ranger summer students.
