I will be near Tsali this weekend and am wondering which Tsali trail is best for a beginner. I ride a good bit, but my wife wants to ride also, so I need to know what loop would be the best for a beginner. Based on what I have seen, it looks like only the left and right loops will be open the days we are able to ride.

Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks,
Joe

For a beginner, I'd recommend the right loop, only because there are break outs at about 4 and 8 miles and the trail back is just about all DH double track.

Taking that into consideration: Left Loop will give you lake views, summer breezes, photo ops and less mud if it rains. Plus, you can cut out at County Line Road. The new rider would eventually get a nice double track downhill run. If an older female with a hangover a bad leg riding solo can do it - anybody with desire to ride can.

Right loop

I did the right loop with my wife a few years ago and she was ok on it. It's pretty easy, but she manged to fall on a couple of small roots that were no perpendicular to the trail. I think it was a 14 mile ride to the overlook and back on the fire road. My mistake was giving slightly under estimating the mileage to the overlook and putting a working bike computer on her bike...

I'd do Right. it starts out with such an unbelievably sweet, easy, roller coaster ride from the parking lot, that it ought to put her in a good mood from the start. (not saying she's moody, but beginners need to carry good attitude)
