The Plunge - 3.1 miles - YELLOW
Mike’s Barn Loop +500/-500

Stampede down the road and prairie run before the first ascension to get the heart pumping. The plunge has something for everyone, minimalist trail, ridge running, scenic vistas, skid turns, and moderate descents. Perhaps your preference is for uphill climbing and shin shaking plunges. Well, you will not be disappointed. Or if you define plunge as an entrance method into a cold water. Yes, that too is provided.
