Description

This trail is the more difficult of the two trails in this area. The climbs and descents are fairly steep, and you'll encounter some rocks and logs as well. It's a popular riding spot for intermediate and advanced riders.

You can link this with the less technical Murray Lake Trail to make a longer loop.

The trail has been updated and is 7.9 miles long not counting path to and from the trailhead the and has very technical climbs.

Holy uphill. So much uphill. Mile 4 was kind of fun but that's it. Tight, twisty and roots on every downhill and uphill. 6.5mi — 1h 06m
