Circling one of the knobs of Chestnut Ridge, this loop gets its name from the numerous outcroppings of quartz rock that are scattered about the mountainside. If you’re not sure what quartz looks like, it’s the white stuff. On paper the map may look confusing, but once on the trail you should easily find your way to a nice ride. Highlights: Quartz outcroppings, numerous turns, spotty views, technical sections.
