Hagg Lake Loop Professional Review and Guide
"Combination of singletrack trail, paved paths, and roads that take you around scenic Hagg Lake in Scoggins Valley Regional Park in Washington County. Bridge crossings. This sinewy trail offers plenty of opportunities for fun as it circles Hagg Lake. The mostly singletrack route weaves in and out of oak woodlands and fir forest and offers plenty of rolling hills. Great swimming holes and juicy blackberries (ripe in mid-August) are some of the many distractions awaiting you. Watch out for mountain bikers blazing this burly route. If you want to compete in a trail-running race around the lake, check out the Hagg Lake Trail Run held in February."

I got soooo lost! And I almost went down 3 times on the trail... it was very bad footing...
And the WORST part! I think I was the first person on this trail in the past year. I cleared the spider webs. It was like a horror film. Huge webs with every step. I could feel the mesh of webs dangling in the breeze behind me.
I expect some webs. That's normal. I run trails a lot.
I was supposed to do 26 miles. I ended up doing 22 and almost cried in the middle because of getting lost so many times and so many spiders and webs all over me and, oh it was bad. Call me girlie, but I didn't expect to be wearing a thick layer of webs from head to toe by the end.
But, I do have to say... the blackberries were totally ripe! And, the paved outter loop is really a great place to bike!
