West Branch Loop

Average Rating:    (4.5 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 2

Some snowmobile trails to get you here and there, but the real fun is slightly hidden amongst the snowmobile trails. Make sure you technical riders "try" Rocks Ridge between White Oak and Wolfe Pond Rd. The rest of the trail is very pleasing for the true mountain bikers...beginners beware!!! But don't be turned away from the technical sections, there are plenty of miles of Roads, doubletrack trails and easier singletrack. SingleTrack Rocks here!!!

Summary:
Good Technical Trail, well marked for the most part. Nice rolly rocky stuff along the ridge, then long single track steep down. Awesome ride.

Recommended Route:
Used the snow moblie trail to get up from lower parking lot right off White Oak, found the Ridge Single Track trail, road for about 4 miles, then found an intersecting trail that took me back down a steep long decent back to the snow mobile trail by where I parked, got lucky.

Summary:
West Branch Loop: This is very technical and very demanding. Almost 100% singletrack. (If you rode this last year...it's changed this year 2001). This year the loop is complete. Lots of climbs and real rocky sectors***beware of the rocky sections, it's a challenge. enjoy

Recommended Route:
There is no true route, it's a loop. But, the locals...RCST members...ride this loop in a counter-clokwise direction. ***Now you can start from Doc Smith***, But, you'll need to carry your bike over the creeks, until the bridges are done>>>Due to be done in Summer '01>>>They could use your help, mostly every second weekend of the month, is trailwork/maintenance, then rides.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Greenland, Stony Creek, Gold Mine area
