“A loop that starts off easy along the lake and gets more technical and difficult towards the end.”— Doc Eng
Electric Mountain Bikes Allowed
This loop is a good beginner mountain bike ride, but not a good beginner bicycle ride. Depending on the skill level of the beginner they may need to walk through some sections or turn back and head back along the lake.
Need to Know
Stop by the park office to get a trail map because not all of the intersections have trail markers. There are many other trails here.
As you turn in away from the lake, the trail climbs gradually and meets with several other trails. Check your map or GPS, or download the MTB Project mobile app. As you continue along the trail on the backside of the peak the trail becomes more rocky/rooty and mudddy/rutted in some sections. After some creek crossings and some short climbing you'll reach the final leg of the ride.
The Kennedy Creek Trail becomes narrower and more technical at this point with some more short climbs followed by a quick descent back to the starting trail and a short ride to the parking area.
