Nice loop without too much climbing. Recommended route is to ride it clockwise. The first half of the downhill is a well built flow trail through a ravine with excellent bermed corners, doubles, step ups and step downs. All of the features can be rolled by beginning riders, while advanced riders will have a blast going fast through the trail features. Do not ride uphill through the flow trail section.

 I like to "figure 8" this one with Outhouse Loop. Great trail, just short.
