Ride Deer Run to its junction with the Lower Spring

miles with a hard climb just before it joins Lower Spring
Loop. A right turn on Lower Loop is the easiest ride.
The left is a hard climb. Following the trail on the
right will join Upper Spring Loop with green blazes.
Take the left turn. Follow the Upper Loop to the junction
with Mountain Express and yellow blazes. Take the right
to where the Upper Spring Loop leaves it and turn right
on Upper Spring Loop.
If you want to ride all the trails, ride to the
junction with the section of Lower Loop you did not
come up. Ride down it. Come back up Lower Loop as you
did before. Ride Upper Spring Loop to its junction with
Mt. Express. Ride Mt Express North to its end. There
is a small loop on Mt. Express that can be ridden also.
There is an upper trail head past the loop. A well worn
trail goes into the woods across the road from the trail
head. Take the Mt. Express back to the trail head and
can help out by updating, adding information, making
corrections, or sending pictures.
