Dump Singletrack

This trail is a part of the Levis Mounds trail system.   

Dump Singletrack (ST) is a short half mile section of trail that begins right behind the main trailhead.  If you hang a right out of the parking lot on Lower Glen, and then a left at the fork right after you enter the main woods, that will be Dump. The trail runs through the trees behind the building, and heads out towards the front mounds.

Running along flat ground, it is mostly unremarkable when compared to the other singletrack trails.  I ride Dump fairly often though, as it is a direct line to the bottom of North Face.

In the main post, I listed this as the recommended technical ride: 

Shorter, technical ride with more climbing: Dump > Porky Point > North Face > Cliffhanger > Switchback > Toad Road > Corkscrew > Select Cut > Warm Up > Snodgrass (Approximately 6.7 miles.)
In this ride, you'd only be on dump for about half of it's length before accessing Porky Point.

In reality, I tend to not ride Porky Point all that often, and instead take Dump ST and head straight for the climb up North Face.

PS The Lucy's Loop listing has been updated with several photos.
