    Reviewing Loose Lucy trail:

    Fast and offering up a mix of tech and flowing terrain. Challenging enough to keep you on your toes, and testing your fitness.

    As of today, it could use some love. A crew with brush saws and hand saws would make this an exceptional experience.

    Great place to ride while waiting for trails on the Oregon side to dry.

    This place rocks! It's a climb that's for sure but the view and the down hill along the cliff edge make it more than worth it!

    It's not 4 miles, but I suppose when it was first listed it was. There are at least 4 fun sections to DH (Loosie Lucie, Hidden Valley, Lil Moab, Coyote) and are all accessible via some form of doubletrack jeep trail or paved./gravel road (Courtney). You can also shuttle. Besides the actual ride, the views of the Gorge are amazing! Most agree this area offers the most stunning views of the Gorge period. Great for winter riding too. Some sections of private land so mind you manners.

    Lots of different options with this trail system. Either way you slice it, you'll be climbing. Little Moab is pretty technical, so be careful. Above there a few very steep parts that your calves won't thank you for later. Incredible views. Lovely flowers. Solitude if you ride it on weekdays. Nice parking area/bathroom/etc. Good place for dogs too.

    Not the easiest trail but great views. Just bought a new bike and was taken here on my second trip out. Great parking lot. Wonderful views on old steady climb but more than I should have tried this early. It some some flow but be careful a few granite drops. Also April must be poison oak month. I took a spill and have been off my feet with both my legs covered. Advanced might be a good skill level.

    Great network of trails and has a long ride life throughout the year.
    Gets plenty of sun to stay dryer than many in the gorge.

    Trails consist of mud, rocks and some technical features. Large variety of trails. There is a jeep style road to take that can break off for several options to make quick or long rides.

    Recently a new parking lot was places and restrooms will follow.
