This loop of approximately 7.75 miles has a bit of every surface: singletrack, doubletrack, gravel road--even a tiny piece of pavement. The grade stays relatively flat, which makes the Pink Beds a good destination for bikers just beginning to discover the joys of off-road riding. The area was named for the abundance of pink flowers that bloom in the boggy bottoms. But since the majority of the blooming takes place after mid-April, this spectacular display must be explored on foot.
