The top of The Looney begins where 1971 intersects with Cut 'Em Off Pass. The top of the trail is not marked, but you can see where it drops in. There are several steep switchbacks before the trail follows the contour of the northern side of the small valley, and much of the singletrack is off-camber bench cut. It crosses the creek bed several times, with most crossings over bridges (watch out for these bridges when they're wet - they're super slick). As the trail drops to the bottom of the valley, it parallels the creek bed before ending at the intersection of Alternate Flight Pattern and the Deer Trail.
