West loop: This trail starts on the left (West) side of Morton-Taylor road just North of the main pedestrain bridge # 5. It starts out straight with a loop at the end and contains 9-10 optional log piles along the way that gives the rider a choice of riding these or going around them. There is also an optional technical section called Lucky Dawg with 6 cedar ramped logs and 5 additional log piles that do not have a go around to them for the more advanced rider. There is also a 40 foot "FAT skinny" log ride, the 32 foot elevated "Trestle bridge" and two 28 foot long boardwalks to ride.

      Large tree down on the entrance to west loop. I could try and move it sometime but right now is not the best.

      A lot of deep mud. Had to walk quite a few sections to avoid tearing up the trail.

      I suggest wearing long sleeves, trails are slightly overgrown but makes it feel like a back-country ride.
