I'm giving Sparks Lake Trail 4 stars simply for the view. While its listed as a loop, it can be ridden as an out and back making it as long or as short as you prefer. There really isn't much technical about the ride. Mostly rolling hills with a few lava flows to work your way through and around. There are some lake access spur trails that make great lunch stops. Make sure and stop occasionally to look around and soak in the view. South Sister is just off to the north and is pretty spectacular. Nothing too difficult, just fun and beautiful!
