Added by The Outbound Collective

The Mount Marquette Loop offers scenic views and numerous short, but difficult, trail sections. This is a highly technical trail for advanced mountain bikers.

The Mount Marquette Loop is one of the classic trails in the Noquemanon Trail Network. Starting at the trailhead, the loop is generally ridden in a counter-clockwise direction. Follow the Gurley trail to the Doctors trail, and from there, the trail connects with the Southern Cross trail and shortly after, the Jeep trail. Switchbacks then take you up the Forget-Me-Not trail, and then on to the Up a Creek trail. After reaching Shiras Park, take the Secret trail to the Goat trail and then finish by heading down the Split Tree trail.
