“A fun, fast, big bang-for-your-buck loop.”— Amanda Simpson
This is a fast run, and completely runnable—although, a few stretches of slickrock are ankle-biters so some (myself included) may choose to walk on those spots.
Cross the highway here and continue on the trail, which is now named Rocky Tops. Rocky Tops is a mixture of slickrock and hard-pack singletrack that will take you along ledges, up slight climbs, and eventually down a steep series of switchbacks to some smoother, tamer trail. You won't hit a junction until about 7.8 miles—stay on Rocky Tops through this junction for another 0.2 miles.
At this point, you'll hit another junction for 7-Up or Coney Flats. Take the Coney Flats route for approximately another 0.25 miles until you hit the junction for Middle Earth. Take a sharp right onto Middle Earth for your 0.5 miles home. Enjoy some interesting rock formations and a smooth singletrack until you hit the highway and complete your loop!
