This is a trail loop beginning at Qualchan Golf Course. You begin a pedaling up an old access road for a short time before getting onto single track. Terrain is rolling and fun, with intermittent rocks and roots, narrow trails in very steep hillside cuts, but generally not too sketchy. Very fun on any bike that goes up AND down.
