    Park at the trailhead on Batchelor Street. As for a loop, everything there is rideable and fun in both directions. For ease of finding your way around, you could do a perimeter loop - Far East, Far Side, Far Out, Pete's Wicked, Lizard King, Raptor, Jacob's Ladder, Rollercoaster, Yellow Brick Road (YBR is not listed on the map, but it's obvious once you finish RC and it spits you out in the parking lot). Or do that loop in reverse. RC's fun to end on, though, especially if you're popping your B street cherry.

    Or...Twister, Upper Twister to the fireroad, down Technical to Viper, Em's Gem, T-Rex, Jacob's Ladder, Rollercoaster, Yellow Brick Road

    Or...Entrance Exam, Far East, Missing Persons, Lost & Found, down Twister, Serpentine, Viper, Lizard King, Pete's Wicked, Far Out, Far Side, Far East, back to parking lot.

    Have fun!

    Where can I get a trail map? It's hard to believe I live about 4 mins from the entrance and I've never been there lol..
