This is considered to be primarily a biking area. Please stay alert while on the trails and be respectful of other users.

Description

This loop has a bit of everything - smooth sections, open bedrock, switchbacks, ledges and ramps, and a little exposure here and there all with great scenery. Running the north side of the loop first allows for more gradual climbing though there are still a few rock steps that must be tackled. The southern half of the loop has steeper descents and ramps with the occasional exposed section.

The west end of the loop is Junction #8 while the east end is Junction #7.
