The trail follows a gorge through the park. The northern portion is often very rocky and at times requires alertness to remain on-route. It is often used as a very technical ride for expert mountain bikers. The southern section is much more gentle. However, in winter it receives much less sun and can often be icy to the point where Yaktrax or micro-spikes should be considered. There are no major climbs, but the terrain does fall on both sides of the loop from NW to the SE. You can access the loop from Tech Center Drive, which abuts the very SE section of the loop.

Easy during good weather. 2nd half of trail was extremely icy; hiking that with a dog wasn’t fun. I’ll come check this out again during spring/summer months.
