The Steeplechase loop is the larger and lightly easier loop of the two at GIHP. Access is found directly past the parking lot. Head north on the trail and follow the signs. Most people ride the loop counter clockwise but it can be ridden in both directions. Ride it a high speeds and you'll quickly gain an appreciation of why this site was chosen for the 1996 Olympics. This one will really get your lungs working. Parts are semi-technical but nothing that an intermediate rider couldn't handle. For more technical riding hit up the Granite loop on the other side of the road. Races are scheduled in the area on a semi regular basis. Stay off the horse trails and remember your riding etiquette in case you do run across them. Bike riders yeild to EVERYONE.
