Nelson loop is when the fun descending of Hall Ranch begins! Climb all the way up to Nelson loop and prepare for a fast descent the entire way down! This trail is a bi-directional loop but is best when ridden in a clockwise direction. If it has rained or snowed recently this trail tends to get closed easily due to mud.

Trail is dry but there are two sets of absolutely terrible brake bumps forming halfway down the clockwise descent.
