The Red Loop at Little River is roughly 3.5 miles of singletrack with about 125 feet of elevation change that can be ridden in both directions. There are two more advanced options parallel to the trails that are well marked. The first option you come to (when riding clockwise) is a wooden ladder step-up that can be easily rolled or launched. The second option dips just below the trail and features a small rock garden. The climbs are gradual but a good workout and the trail is technical enough to require some skill in order to maintain good flow.
