After a long climb up from Oak Creek, this loop trail is an often-missed gem. This year-round mountain bike trail is a hidden gem of Mac/Dunn forest. It's just a short spin up a spur road near some of the most travelled areas of the forest, yet you'll likely never see a soul up here. Along the way, look out for one of the largest Douglas firs in the area. It's right in front of you on one of the switchbacks.
