Bike the Morgan Creek Loop

7.1 Miles Total - 894 ft gain - Loop Trail

Originally added by The Outbound Collective

The Morgan Creek Loop is one of the longest sections in the Noquemanon Trail Network, offering intermediate to experienced mountain bikers a wonderful ride! The trail is beautiful, with several sections requiring moderate technical work.

This trail is for intermediate to advanced mountain bikers, and it is recommended that hikers and trail runners find another section of the Noquemanon Trail Network to enjoy. 

You can add more descents to the Morgan Creek Loop by climbing the Benson Grade and riding the South section backwards. If you choose to do this, grab a map to avoid getting lost!
