Adopt These Trails!

Description

The above track is the "outer loop" of the trail system. This track includes Wintu Trail, The Escalator Trail, and the Terminator trails. At the top of the Escalator it connects to Whiskeytown National Park (at the top of Mule Mountain).

The best route is taking the trail counter clockwise because going up The Terminator is a challenge.

Great ride! going up the Escalator was good climbing, the loop around Mule Mtn was fun. We went down Snail Trail instead of Terminator, what a blast! 14.4mi
