The Butter Valley route will be our shortest loop, just 18 miles. At mile two you will have a climb that is about a mile long, it is paved, so this is great for people less sure about their climbing and descending skills on the gravel. Once on top of the ridge, you can expect scenic views, and rolling twisty roads. At about mile eight, you will have a mellow descent for approximately two miles, then you head up another one-mile climb. Once again, some rollers on top of the ridge before your final paved descent as you sprint (or not) for the finish line! Time to tell stories of your accomplishments and enjoy the company! The 18-mile route will be marked with directional arrows, to ensure you stay on course. Due to the short distance, there will not be a rest stop on this route.
