The "main" loop at Brumley. The trail is relatively flowy with a few technical spots. The northern part of the trail that switchbacks back and forth is the most technical. It's not too bad though, and can be ridden either way. Additionally, when riding CCW towards the end there's a rock roll.

       Definitely a pretty fun trail. However if I had to choose between this and Buckeye loop, I’m going with Buckeye.
