CMBRkids Loop

CMBR Intro Loop

Are you bringing the kiddos out to ride singletrack for the first time?  Or maybe you’re looking for a little taste yourself?  This is a 1/2 mile loop that starts from the main parking lot trailhead.  It’s real singletrack with lots of ups and downs, twists and turns, but it’s not as technically challenging as the trails on the back side of the park.

Be sure to go 50 yards to the RIGHT of the main map, back towards the picnic area to find the multiuse trailhead.

You can find a GPS map of this loop for your phone on Trailforks at:
