Trail Description
About this trail
The Fun Loop is the lower portion of an extensive trail system known as Elm Ridge. The Fun Loop is actually a loop with several interior branches. All fun. From the Fun Loop, you can climb to Elm Ridge on the Escarpment Trail or Levitate. Once to the top (1200 feet later) you are rewarded with a series of trails along the ridge and a number of screaming downhills down a number of faces. Elm Ridge in total has more than 25 miles of maintained trails all marked.

Review: Stellar technical trails! I spent a night at the lean-to and spent the next day riding. There's a water source near the lean-to if you need to fill up. Lots of climbing, lots of rocks, and some real fun descents. The Escarpment Trail is popular with hikers so be careful for fellow trail users.

Review: Just started mountain biking and since this is only 7 miles way I figured I'd give it a try. The trails were well marked and an overall for the first time going out I had a great time. I look forward to going back to explore more trails.

Review: Rode the "Fun Loop" today and was blown away by much "Fun" it was! Challenging enough but not too technical for my intermediate skill level. Well maintained and well marked. Nice rolling climb and downhill return. Trail system also offers much more challenging terrain for the more advanced rider.

Review: Elm Ridge is by far some of the best mountain biking Ive experienced on the east coast. I live in NJ and obviously here there are no shortage of nice places to ride and I frequent Colorado and Utah. I was blown away by how "out there" elm ridge felt and how nice the trails were, not only fun wise, but how well maintained everything was. Well worth the 2 hour drive. Not super technical except some roots until you get a little higher up in elevation where you can find some rockier sections, but there was a nice long rolling climb and it was super fun.

Review: These trails are sweet. From the parking lot off of 23 there is a lower section that is easy loops. However if you really want to ride the best trails climb the Escarment climb to the top and play around on the trails at the top. These trails are sweet and have great flow. There are sections with rocks but they are not bad at all. Had a blast riding these trails.

Review: The local bike shop told us about these trails. The trails are really well maintained and the lay out is fun. Everything from hard pack, rock gardens, tight singe track to fast descents. Cant wait to go back.
