Description
Basalt Mountain Trail is part of a larger loop which includes Cattle Trail. Some call it the Big Loop (at Basalt Mountain). Getting there is a long 3.5 mile climb on a dirt road but once you reach the trailhead you're rewarded with a beautiful ride through a dense forest that gives you the feeling that you're really out there.

There are no points of concern when it comes to navigating the trail. It's straightforward.
