Need to Know

The trail has been updated and is now 7.9 miles long not counting the path to and from the trailhead with very technical climbs. (The mapped GPS track is outdated.)

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.

At a high point of the trail. A 360 degree view of the forest and trail around you makes for a great spot to rest.
