Kings Beach Loop (4.5 miles with about 850 feet of vert):
Starting at the end of Chipmunk St in Kings beach, this loop features some awesome, flowy singletrack and an 800(ish) foot climb right out of the gate. Follow the Chipmunk trail a few hundred yards before bearing right up the Mini Downhill, then take a short fire road to the Beaver Tail/Powerline Moto linkup. Climb up to the run’s high point and run the flat Pipeline trail to the top of Round Hill (about a mile of flat running). Crash downhill from here down some incredible corners and berms to connect back to the Chipmunk trail and close the loop! Pdf map here: Kings Beach
