This trail starts out nice and easy so to get your legs warmed up. There is a logical flow to the pathway and you'll see the occasional orange plaque with an arrow on it nailed to the odd tree. There are some relatively steep and short climbs followed with some nice flat sections and downhills. The downhill sections are a series of banked switchbacks and/or long flowing descents. No man-made jumps or obsticals at all, but one or two rock jumps. Nothing feels overly steep or dicey, so you can really point and go. The last accent section however is a leg burner, so save your energy. Be mindful of one particular downhill section that has deep and very loose gravel...it got me a few times,(this is towards the end of the loop). If you are not into some of the steep climbs, there are ways to circumvent them. Have fun!!

Turn off HWY 97 onto Prarie Valley Road in Summerland. Follow this road around for about 5-10 mins until Morrow Ave. Turn right onto this avenue and go for a minute and you'll see a small power/utility building with a green door on the right side of the road...it makes a buzzing sound. You'll see a trailhead next to the structure. Alternatively, you can access the trail from the last right turn before Morrow Ave. God I hope this makes sense. Check out www.testofhumanity.com it shows some info and a map; however, their map only shows where you access race parking etc. Use the trailhead I described.
