Description

This is an easy loop trail that is multi-use all year. It features great views around every bend in all seasons. During the summer months, you'll see hikers, runners, and mountain bikers. The winter season brings out xc skiers, snowshoers, and brave souls simply running in the snow. The Pioneer Loop is the only winter trail that allows skijoring, fat bike riding, and snowshoeing.This trail has two-way traffic, so be ready as you approach a blind corner!
