Directions - 81 to Edinburgh, 675 east follow to camp Roosevelt.  Just PAST camp Roosevelt there is a parking lot at the Stephens trailhead on left.

Description -   Great loop that is more moderate in length and time than most rides in the area.  You can choose to ride this loop either way but I suggest starting on the stephens trail and riding the loop clockwise.  Stephens starts as a nice relatively flat singletrack with scattered techs here and there.  Great warm-up..  Once it starts climbing its pretty relentless but mostly ride able, you may get off here and there (easy now), due to some loose rocks.  Once on the ridge your still up hilling but with some great technical uphill lines to keep your mind off any leg pain..  Out and back to Kennedy some really tough uphill lines, fun as hell back down..  Once you head toward the Edith gap, trail is really cool, bench cut singletrack +, with lots of rock lines for about a mile..  Sweet section..  After you hit the switchback the trail goes tame for a bit, but you don't loose/ waste that much vert on the fire road.. The double track goes right into the switchback in the road..  DON'T TAKE THE ROAD DOWN!!  take a right on the road, travel 50 FEET, take a right back on the trail, super fun technical singletrack back to the car..

If you want more miles, take a left at the top of Stephens and explore, out and back style.  Not sure what you'll find, but its an out and back so no worries..

Loops -Stephens to ridge trail, to Edith gap..
