Description

There are many entrance points to this trail system. This particular entrance is not busy but provides off-road parking. The trail starts on an old road and climbs quickly through a relatively young pine forest. The hike is fairly clear of tree-fall and is pretty level. It is popular for mountain biking. The trails taken in this loop extend to the southeast, passing over and back across a creek and through Alders via an old road before climbing steadily back up again.
