I was going off the little map that is ingraved on the sign at the end of the parking lot (you know where the road trail kinda sorta starts)
I'll try to get some pictures of the trail tonight (I hope to go out there again after work, now if only I didn't have a walmart bike that is down to 3 speeds, I should be getting one next weekend though )

The "Back Loop" is beyond the grass field. After you exit the "Front Loop" turn left and continue down the grassy two track. You'll come to a point where you'll turn right, as you do that look to the left and you should spot a sign and trail entrance. This loop is 2.2 miles and very similar in style to the front loop - i.e. no hills here, and lots of turns. When you exit the back loop you'll be further away (down the grassy two track) from the parking lot. As you exit turn right to go back to the front loop/parking lot.
Thanks for the info. I was about to head down that way after my first lap of the 1.8 section this week, but didn't see any tire tracks or anything indicating that there was another section so I turned around and did another lap.
Next time I go down there maybe I'll bring a saw to clear the trees. How big are they, so I know what to bring? They've been down for a couple weeks at least, can't believe no one's taken care of them yet.
Rode both sections today. Trail is dry and clear. One of the bridges on the front section (3rd one in , i think) has developed a hole, and the 2nd bridge on the back section has a couple boards missing on the approach. A couple of low hanging trees on the back section, but nothing blocking the trail. Thanks to whoever cleared the tree!
Lost cause today. By the time I was there the snow was nothing like what I cleared out of my driveway. Water everywhere, there' a large section of water blocking the path to the bridge, too muddy to ride through. Outside of that, the Raisin looks like it's ready to overflow under the Telegraph Road overpass. I went over to Sterling SP but the snow was just slop on the pavement.
Was out there for a bit on the front loop. There was one guy that I passed that said there was a big tree down in the back half. Front looked good except for the usual muddy spots. Bring bug spray for sure if you plan on stopping. I brought my 3 boys 4,6,and 8. The two olders ones were no problem. My youngest just learned how to ride without training wheels so we only did a little today. Spent most of the time riding around the outer gravel track.
rode munson today, the trail is dry, front loop had 2 trees down moved one, the other one needs cut. however the trail in from the parking lot (any of them going back there) is a mud pit or a sponge or both.
