Great trail that is clearly marked. Doesn't get as much traffic as the Little Clifty Creek Loop, maybe because it doesn't flow as well with some technical areas. The middle section has been re-routed recently.

       Recently reworked and improved, this loop offers some nice climbing and descending opportunities with nice views along the way.

      I would not rank it black diamond- it’s a blue trail all the way. No difficult technical features or overly steep grades to be found. Just flowy xc trail with a few fun features thrown in.

       I agree with the previous post. This is not black because of any technical terrain or features . If anything it’s because the climbs are steep. Loads of fun, great views.
