Hoppy Hour Horse Butte Easy Intermediate

Let's ride the singletrack at Horse Butte for this autumn Hoppy Hour.  The trails are in great shape and free from the sand and horse destruction that is so common here in the summer.  We'll head out from the lower parking lot and do the Coyote Loop.  After the ride, we can head over to Worthy Brewery or to Baldy's BBQ on the east side.   For those new to the area, let's meet to carpool at Worthy Brewing at 3:15. 

This will be our last Hoppy Hour ride before the time changes so we shouldn't need lights in order to ride.  That being said, it would also be a good idea to bring a small light if you have one in case we are delayed by a mechanical issue.  Dress in layers...too much rather than not enough!  

We will plan on riding the 10.2 mile Coyote Loop with the option of extending the ride by riding up Arnold Ice cave trail for a bit if everyone wants more mileage. 

Please check back on this site before heading out to make sure it hasn't been cancelled due to weather or poor trail conditions!
