Pleasant easy walking on this pair of mountain bike loops at Beaverdam, Falls Lake. Parked up at the mountain bike trailhead. Crossed the road to the trailhead sign and followed the track on the right side, then signs for outer loop. Towards the end of the first loop, a connector showed a sign for West loop. There were quite a few cars parked up at the trailhead but we encountered only 4 cyclists in total so it was a relaxed hike in shaded forest skirting the lakeshore early on. Based on my GPS recording, the total mileage was just shy of 5 miles.
