This advanced-level, 16.4-mile loop can be done as all singletrack, with 6.1 miles of rolling climbing on the Minnow Ridge Trail. Be sure to climb the extra 880' on the Chikamin Tie Trail to Forest Service Road 6210, so you can enjoy the same sweet 2.0-mile descent as you get by climbing the road. The 7.7-mile gravel-road climb alternates between middle-ring and low-ring efforts. Upon reaching the trail, you're immediately rewarded with a fast, fun 2.0-mile descent on the Chikamin Tie Trail. Scenery: Distant views on the road climb and latter stretches of trail; overviews of Chikamin Creek and its lush surroundings.

Great ride. Can't wait to go back. Plenty of hills so you feel like you earned it, but nothing that's so painful that it ruins your weekend.
