The easiest course for the Ragnar Trail Ranier event.
The Green Loop leaves Ragnar Village with Yellow to run through the main base area of Crystal before turning onto a steep gravel trail. Yeah, it’s steep. But just as your VO2 max has reached…well, max, a left turn breaks the Green Loop away from Yellow and the elevation flattens out. A couple of turns and you are greeted with a pretty sweet ole view out the box canyon that leads to Crystal Mountain. The path is a wide dirt road and the grade is mellow. Turn on your speed and breathe in that fresh evergreen air. Once you get back to the valley floor, a few turns take gets you onto a nice mellow climb and back to the Village. Easy peezy.
