Overview

This ride is a moderate fireroad climb to a singletrack descent (well, mostly down). Link it with Gray's Peak (up-n-back) - and you've got yourself a good ride! Local's favorite.

Description

In the city of Fawnskin, park in the parking lot across from Fire Station 48. Ride the paved road 3N14 (Rim of the World Drive) a little ways up until it turns into a fireroad. Continue up this road, passing the YMCA camp. Pass another fireroad 3N12 that comes in to your right and ride 1/4 mile until you run into the Hanna Flats Campground. Turn into the campground and find campsite #49. You'll see a trailhead between campsites 49 and 51 - this is where it gets fun!

There are about 6 sections of singletrack that is broken up by fireroads. However, it's easy to pick up the next section of singletrack - just follow the bike tracks! The first section is mostly climbing, then the rest of the trail is mostly down. The Hanna Flats trail going in this particular direction will link up to Grout Bay trail - after about an 1/8 mile fire road climb. Take the Grout Bay trail down for a fun descent to a parking lot and highway 18 (North Shore Drive) road. Turn left at the highway back to the parking lot.

For a better time climbing, start the other way and climb up Grout Bay and Hanna Flat trails - then come back again for a fun up-n-back ride. A must do link-up is Gray's Peak (2.2 miles) to top out for a great view of the valley and lake.

This is a popular trail for hikers and bikers, so please be courteous.

Just a heads up, the road past Gray's Peak is still closed to the public due to nesting eagles. The sign says it will reopen June 16th but a call to the forest service would be the best bet. May 14, 2017
its just as the title says pretty flat! fun trail though smooth single track but the bushes are close and will scratch your legs so i recommend pants! its a great trail for exercise defiantly more of an xc trail! Jul 3, 2017
9-17-17 Shush....Don't let this get out! This is a really neat ride, especially for the old timers like me, 61. Parked at Gray's peak parking. Rode 3.3 miles (hwy and 3N14) to the trial head in the Hanna Flat campground. The trail is uphill somewhat for the first 1/2 mile or so, but then is mild uppers and downers. Great terrain. =5.25 miles from Hanna flat back to parking area. Sep 17, 2017
