White Ranch Loop

White Ranch Loop Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Despite its rough surface, this trail is surprisingly popular with mountain bikers, so look out for them on the downhill sections. Also, the route described here covers only a portion of the park.

You can continue into its northern extremities on the Rawhide Trail to add another 4.5 miles and 1,000 vertical feet to the route. The route moves in and out of trees and a gorgeous meadow over much it its distance. Grade: An eight degree average angle of ascent, though the very rocky surface during the first two miles makes it seem harder."

Great trail - and my dog loved it. There are a lot of mountain bikers so do keep your dog on leash to make way for all users.
