Small Loop, just about 1 mile used primarily in the XC Race but the last leg is run in reverse for the enduro to tie into Rocky Trail West (about the last 250 yards or so). Riding this trail from dogwood after climbing Glady Creek, and Scotts Loop is recommended. There isn't much vertical elevation and most changes are short punchy climbs or short and steep rolls. Several small tech sections of rocks or log ride overs.
