You can ride the whole loop if you are a masochist. It is a long, boring road with
a few death climbs, so most people run a shuttle.
The first 1/2 mile or so of trail is very rocky and flat. Then the trail drops steeply
for 3-4 miles. There are some wild descents in this section. When you reach the
creek bottom, the trail flattens out and becomes an 11 mile cross country style
ride through meadows and woods. Lots of ups and downs with a variety of trail
conditions. The "downhill" ends at Belt Creek, which you must ford - DO NOT
ATTEMPT IN HIGH WATER! After that, you climb a mile or so out to the shuttle
car on Logging Creek Rd. It's very anticlimactic.
