I usually start at main lot, ride CCW and ride Skunk to top- turn around and ride it CW. When I get to XC trail head I either head over to Foote or ride main loop CCW again depending on time and more imporatantly legs.

Just compromise - ride CCW and then turn around and hit it the other way. There is not much flow either direction, so it works in both directions.

I can't decide which direction I prefer to ride, both directions have spots that are alot of fun. Naturally I prefer CCW because I HATE climbing and it feels like there is less of itb but lamost all of the East loop is a ton of fun going CW.

Sadly I have not ridden SB yet this year due to moving back out there :D

I got there at 6:30, and while it wasn't "full", there was a bunch of cars with racks.

Which lot? The main lot was pretty full of cyclists last night. Did you park at the XC ski hut?


The main lot, when I left at 7:00 it wasn't at all full

What are the advantages of riding a mountain bike anyway?
Staying at home, lying on the couch is much more comfortable

I prefer CCW because then you get to bomb down the fun "newer" section that parallels the XC trail at the end.

Skunk Ridge you have to do CW so you get to enjoy its fun downhill section though.
