Description

This ride starts in the Baker Creek Preserve parking lot to the east of the construction of the new bike park set to open in the spring of 2020.

At the intersection with Sycamore Loop and Sycamore Short Cut, take the second option on the right for about 0.10 miles. At the intersection with the bottom of Devil's Racetrack Downhill and the start of Best Medicine, continue counterclockwise on Sycamore Loop for 0.3 miles until the intersection with the bottom of Floyd Fox. Take the left option at the intersection and continue on Sycamore Loop for another 0.3 miles until you reach the intersection with the bottom of Cruze Valley Run (Downhill) and Sycamore Short Cut.

Keep going straight on Sycamore Loop for another 0.10 miles until you reach the intersection with Redbud Crest on the right. Climb up Redbud Crest for about 0.75 miles and continue straight when you reach the intersection with the Downhill Access trail that takes you to the start of Barn Burner (Downhill) and Cruze Valley Run (Downhill).

After another 0.10 miles, pass the bermed access point to Barn Burner (Downhill) and immediately take a right on Floyd Fox and enjoy the flowing downhill goodness for the next 1.25 miles until the end at the intersection with Sycamore Loop you passed earlier in the ride.

Take a right and continue counterclockwise on Sycamore Loop past Sycamore Short Cut and the bottom of Cruze Valley Run (Downhill) then take a left at the intersection with Redbud Crest. After another 0.10 miles, you'll return to the intersection at the entrance to Baker Creek Preserve where you'll take the trail on the right to return to the parking lot to conclude the ride.
