One Way Only: This is designated as a directional trail.
Begin the Rock Lake Trail behind the trailhead kiosk at Rock Lake trailhead. Be sure not to ride on the ski trail to the left. The trail is quite easy in the beginning with only an occasional rock requiring the rider to choose a ride line.
After riding through intersection N7, you'll be riding in a counterclockwise direction. A few rocky descents will be encountered on the way to N5, all of which will be easily navigated.
The backcountry lakes are a highlight between N4 and N29. Since the trail is fairly rocky and technical here, it might be wise to stop and take in the views.
From N29 to the trailhead the trail is considerably more technical and difficult. This section includes the notorious Wall Street section. You may bypass this long segment by turning left at N29 on to FR 207 and riding north (about 3 miles) to County Highway M.
If you're riding the Rock Lake - IMBA Epic, turn left at N31 and ride through N22 to N13 to access the Patsy Lake trail.
