Description

This 9-mile segment begins where Lakeside Trail concludes, at the west end of Lake Lurleen Dam, next to the dam spillway. Use caution. Some sections are steeply graded, sandy, or covered with loose gravel. In addition, the 9 miles contain no shortcuts to either trailhead. Plan accordingly, as you'll be in a wilderness environment. Due to the prevalence of tight turns, long climbs and descents, beginning mountain bikers will find sections of Tashka very challenging.

Old bike in tree. The frame was found near this spot. The "3" is one of the rescue points and there is a matching one down the hill by the lake. Due to the remoteness, the only way to get the injured out is to carry them to the nearest rescue point and have them transported across the lake by boat.

The Bridge Too Far replacement. Originally just two white oaks lain across the creek so the trail building machine could cross. The closest we can get to it by boat still requires about a two mile hike.
