Kraut Littleton Loop
Park in the large parking lot on the north end of Bonita Lake. Go around the closed gate and ride the two track for about three quarters of a mile. Starting looking for a singletrack taking off from your right. The singletrack runs through the trees with a small creek to your right. The trail will open up into a meadow and continue to the left side of the meadow. You will ride back into the trees where the grade starts to get steep. The trail will level off a bit by a fence. The trail will turn right and travel through meadows and oak groves just below the ridge. You will come two a down hill section where you will cross a dry tank dam. The trail turns left down the canyon from here. Hold on and have fun! There is about three miles of fast rolling trail until you come back out at the lake. When you hit the road , turn left and you will be back at the parking lot you started!
