Just as Flat Creek isn’t flat, Long Branch Loop isn’t long. The trail has the distinction of being in the middle of several more difficult trails in the immediate vicinity. Because the terrain dictates so much of a trail’s difficulty, it’s unusual to find an easy trail so close to more difficult ones. Here’s a great place to introduce someone to dirt. The trail is easy, relatively flat, and can be ridden many times or used as a warm-up for more difficult trails. If you’re feeling a little stronger, ride up the Green Mountain connector trail the half mile or so to the Green Mountain Trail. It’s all downhill on the way back. Tread: 2.3 miles on old roadbed and doubletrack.

Perfect beginner's trail. Chose the path on the right first and enjoy a long coasting, not too steep, downhill on the backside. It actually connects to the Green mountain trail.
