Beginning of Loop
This is another area that you can stage at. It is at the public park inside Winchester. You enter through the Winchester gates (go straight instead of turning into the official staging area) and follow the signs to the park. It is usually OK on a weekday but weekends can get very crowded with soccer games etc. Not a lot of room to turn around but manageable in most smaller rigs if not crowded. You can fit 2-3 smaller rigs on the grassy area shown above.
The above trail cuts across this road.
This is the road you drive down to get to the above staging area. Trail crosses this raod and is located off to the left and to the right near the bottom of this road.
This is the trail off to the left ( going in the counter clockwise direction). Staging area where trailer above is parked is off to the left, road is to the right.
