Trail shared by Eric Ashley

Svelte, fast, and smooth singletrack with a narrow & rowdy finish.

Features -none-

Beauty Creek Road has some substantial wear and tear in the form of monster potholes. The road is passible to vehicles with average clearances, but these obstacles may be a consideration for low clearance vehicles.

Description

Trail 257 is a simple trail. But what it lacks in complexity it more than makes up for with pure fast and playful fun. During a 2.5 mile cruise through the woods the trail serves up smiles aplenty.

Short of a few roots and a small stream crossing, the trail is free of obstacles until you make your final right hand corner on an open section of the ridge. Beyond here the trail gets narrow and off camber. There is also a brief, but challenging, rock segment before you reach the end.

Trail 257 culminates in a double creek crossing. The first is usually rideable, the second may not be. There is a log crossing that will keep you on your toes but should have you back to your car safe and dry.

Trail 257 can be shuttled by using the parking areas across from the bottom of the trail and the other near the top. It can also be climbed; leaving your car at the bottom.
