Technical, rocky singletrack next to a gorgeous flowing stream.

Overview

Description

Lower Trail is the main access point to all trails in the Shingletown Gap area. It begins at the parking area and follows Roaring Run for most of its length.

Not far from the trailhead, there is a mandatory hike-a-bike section. Rumor has it that someone once rode it cleanly, but mere mortals need not attempt. If the water is low enough or there is a rock bridge, it's sometimes possible to bypass the hike-a-bike section on the south side of the stream by riding (or hiking) across the stream and following a parallel trail.

About a mile in, the rocks become more sparce and the trail becomes less technical. At about 2 miles from the parking lot, the trail meets up with Sand Spring Trail and the Sand Spring campsite.
