The Purple Loop is rolling, so riders will enjoy both lots of climbing, and lots of descending.

Begin at East Parking Lot, and start out in either direction. Because this one has ups and downs, it can be ridden either direction. The more popular route takes you clockwise, which gives a fantastic zig-zagging descent at the southwest tip of the loop.

There are plenty of side trails that divert off of this one, so feel free to explore them! This is a very playful area of the park
