Ridge Loop Trail at Lake Lurleen State Park
Lake Lurleen State Park
This 4 mile optional loop is the latest addition to the Tashka Trail System completed in June of 2012. The loop splits off from the Tashka Trail within 350 ft. of the North Trailhead and travels in a southerly direction for approximately 2.3 miles, turns back to the north for the remaining 1.7 miles, and rejoins the Tashka Trail within 150 ft. of the loop starting point. The wide trail corridor and gradual elevation changes makes the loop suitable for beginners, as well as intermediate and expert riders. Day hikers and trail runners looking for easy access to a beautiful section of the Tashka Trail System will find this loop exceptional. The loop is open for use in either a counterclockwise (described above) or clockwise direction of travel; however the beginner mountain biker will likely prefer the counterclockwise direction.
The Tashka Trail System totals approximately 23.47 miles of trails comprised on one main trail with five loops off of the main trail. This system has only two trail heads (north and south) to access the trails.
