Description

This trail is primarily used by mountain bikers but hikers are allowed to use the trail.

This is the furthest-back loop from the trailhead. This primo section is a 6 mile loop back to the bridge. At L you enter the Birdy Loop, one of the features on the novice loop. Its not technical but is embedded in dense junipers on very mild terrain. After the Birdy Loop, it's the Home Stretch for a sweet last mile.
