Route Directions 

A counter-clockwise loop that begins and ends in Sullivan Canyon. Expect a great variety of riding as the singletrack climb out of Sullivan leads you to the smooth-flowing Farmer's singletrack descent which serves as a warm-up for J-Drop and Squirrel Cage technical descents off the Backbone trail. Warning: J-Drop and Squirrel Cage are very steep and technical descents that contain switchbacks, very deep ruts and an extreme abundance of large loose rocks. Please exercise CAUTION when riding down these trails.

Stopped to talk to Terry the Unigeezer. Much better run than last time as the weather was more forgiving. Forgot to pack food but luckily found some trail mix in my pack after J-Drop. Cleared Farmers with ease and did much better on J-Drop/Goat. Legs were toast by the end!
First ride on this loop, great conditions although Squirrel Cage (Goat Trail) is super loose! J Drop was in good shape and Backbone is tons of fun.
Heart rate training/recovery day. Very casual ride, perfect temps beautiful day after the rain.
Great ride after work this morning. New dirt is always nice especially when running into Impy and riding along with her. Thanks again for the company Colette.
J-Drop is terrible! Really rocky. I found it basically unridable. Squirrel Cage and the rest is really good.
