Description

The General Creek trailhead is located inside the Sugar Pine State Park campground and was the location of several 1960 Winter Olympic cross country and biathlon events. There are a number of historical markers located along the trail. Most riders park outside the campground in the parking lot near the entrance station and ride through the campground via the road or paved path to the trailhead. The trailhead is a dirt road closed to vehicles and begins next to Campsite #150.

From the trailhead, the doubletrack road leads west along the north bank of General Creek. Several bridge crossings over the creek are located along the trail allow for a pleasant loop trip. At the upper part of the trail you'll reach the upper footbridge. From there you can cross over the footbridge and follow doubletrack road East and back to the trailhead or turn right on a singletrack trail that continues heading West. The singletrack trail continues to meander above the creek and eventually leads to Lost Lake and Duck Lake.
