Lunar Loop is a really fun trail, I've never seen anything that looks like it. A lot of people think it looks desolate, but I think it's really scenic, especially in the evening when it's quiet and all the other riders have left. It gets really hot, so bring lots of water! I ran out several miles away from the Jeep and forgot my purifier, so I was screwed; don't make the same mistake. Overall this trail is a dream, just be cautious if you're headed down Shinglemill, there are a couple of spots that are very deceptive. I've gone too fast a couple of times because the jumps are really fun, and then almost ET'd off the trail and impaled myself on burned up timber. Bottom line, if you're in Buffalo Creek, don't pass up this gem.
This is like Lair O the Bear without trees.
