Mt Molly Loop

Mt. Molly Loop Professional Review and Guide

"The 8.3-mile Mt. Molly Loop is in the northern half of the Capitol State Forest. Locals consider this ride one of the area's easier outings, but in our opinion, it is difficult. The route follows singletrack trails for over 6 miles and ends with paved and gravel roads. Challenges and thrills are commonplace on this route. There is a lot of climbing, but most of it is moderately difficult to easy.

The really steep stuff comes in short bursts, adding up to about one mile of strenuous climbing. There are some nice downhills, rolling terrain, and level stretches too. The circuit includes ditchlike conditions, deep ruts, mud holes, big rocks, roots, and howling motorcycles. Plan on getting lost; take a compass and the best map you can get your hands on."

I found this trail annoyingly ripped up by motorcycles and logging. I'd avoid it for awhile until they can get it back in decent shape. A large section was closed due to lodding and you were diverted to a gravel road (YUCK)
