This is one of the most popular loops at Boggy Draw. Riding counterclockwise, you get a long, fast, twisty and flowing descent, followed by a short steep climb back to the car. Great views of the Wilsons and McPhee Reservoir.

We really enjoyed the hike. We didn’t do the loop but rather went out and back along the same trail. Things were just starting to green up and blossom, no snow. This was a very easy trail through the forest, more like a nice walk than actual hiking. The rock overhang was really cool! Lots of bikers in the trail.

This was a beautiful trail in late September with the fall foliage in full splendor. Not a difficult hike - most of it is pretty flat - but the view of the reservoir is breathtaking! And the cliffs come around a blind corner so for me it was a total surprise. You can stand on the cliff and look over the basin. It’s more like 15 miles total if you start at the trailhead parking lot, and if you go clockwise the last mile is steep and pretty tough on tired legs. I definitely needed my trail map gps to keep me on track since there are so many branches off this trail and it’s easy to go the wrong way. Definitely one of my favorite hikes so far in this area

This is my favorite loop at Boggy Draw. It has a few mildly technical spots, but mostly fast and twisty singletrack through the forest.
