Overview

The trail is relatively flat with a mix of narrow rocky singletrack followed by some narrow smooth singletrack. Trail has a great flow with even mix of uphills and downhills, trail is very narrow in places adding to the sensation of riding through a tunnel of brush (great on the downhills).

Need to Know

Trail has a couple gates if closed/locked that section is closed (never been closed on any of my rides). Trail has crossing trails that are short advanced sections that lead back to intermediate trail. There are several areas where the trail splits, look for the rocks marking the trail to follow (they border the edges of the good trail).

Description

Start at the campsite parking area running slightly downhill toward the lake shore. As you past the last set of campsites on your left you'll see a singletrack leading up into the hills bordering the lake. The trail is rocky and narrow from the start, watch your pedals, plenty of areas to have a rock grab them.

As you approach the shoreline, the trail follows the shore at about 50' above the shoreline and has a mix of rocky uphills and downhills. Easy to follow. After you pass the first gate you get your first good downhill that runs out to the shoreline again. Continue along this until you reach a large lake inlet that you'll eventually ride completely around. At this inlet the trail turns from rocky to very narrow 6" singletrack that is a little exposed (immediately after second gate).

The trail along the far side of the inlet is not as commonly traveled and is easy to miss. After passing around the inlet you'll continue on the narrow track until you reach the lake again and do a gradual climb until you reach a dead oak with stones stacked around its base.

You are at the trail end and you can return along the same path. Because of the rocky nature of the trail both out and in trails ride differently and very fun to ride.

Pretty technical trail. Lots and lots of rocks. I had to get off and walk a few times. I would do it again once I’m more advanced. 6.6mi

Fun little ride. Not a fast or flowy by any means but a good technical workout. 8mi

A lot of overgrowth. Wearing full-fingered gloves, full arm and leg coverage seem like a must. Last third of the trail was particularly bad. 7.6mi
