This trail starts where Whipple Creek (the actual creek) intersects the North-South connector and the double bridges. You head east and go up the stepped trail.

Pedal up the hill, there is a tight left 180 degree turn, then another right 180. You then have a slight incline for a spell. Not too much farther and you'll see the start of Osborn Loop on your left. Stay on the Whipple Creek Way trail for a spell, and you'll see the end of Osborn Loop on your left.

Not too long after Osborn Loop, the forest opens up to a view of Whipple Creek Riding Center and horse stables. The trail continues left of the stable fence.

The trail looks like it ends where the trail t-bones the white fence. In reality the trail runs between the white fences. There is a ~9 foot wide path that takes a 90 degree right turn and then a hard left, then a hard right, and puts you at the Whipple Creek Riding Center driveway.

You can then turn around and head back to Whipple Creek Park or you can head north on NW 11th Ave and connect to the Fairgrounds Park Connector trail and run over to the Fairgrounds Park Path use their restrooms, get looked at oddly by young children on jungle gyms and the like. They don't see mud covered bicycles very often.

Very chunky from horses and unridable at lower speeds. A few muddy spots but not too bad.
