To ride the return loop from the open field at the high point of Tassle Hill Peak #3 - continue northwest to where the wide grassy area begins to narrow and descend a double-track. As you begin to descend the double track, look for a narrow trail entering the woods on your left. Once in the woods, the trails turns back to the south and you'll soon encounter a fun switchback section that twists back and forth across a fairly steep ravine. This section can be challenging for less experienced riders.

After the ravine section, the trail continues to descend and eventually levels out. Eventually, the trail begins a moderate climb as it angles back towards the outbound trail. Once the trail reconnects with the "jeep trail", you will have the following options:
1. Descend to White Street via the White St - Tassle Hill Connector Trail
2. Follow the jeep trail a short distance uphill and bear right to climb the north side trail to the top of "Tassle Hill Peak #1 Backside" Trail.
3. Cross the Jeep Trail to follow the Ravine Connector trail.

Note: It is not advisable at this time to ride the jeep trail in either direction beyond the short section connecting the single track trails described here. If you are not familiar with this area - It is easy to get lost, so ride with someone who knows the area and be sure to have a compass, GPS device and phone.
