Excellent singletrack with only a short very technical section.

Description

Burnt Mountain trail is a loop off of Corn Mill Shoals trail. With the exception of two short sections, this trail would be rated an easy/moderate trail and is really one of the nicest mountain bike trails in the Forest.

There are two schools of thought on the preferred route for this trail. One option is to take the leg farthest from Cascade Lake Road first since this is a more gradual climb (actually pretty flat and descending for a good part of the way). You'll wind around the mountain eventually getting to the top of the last of several climbs and start back down.

Fairly soon you'll come to a steep section with loose rocks and roots heading back down to Corn Mill Shoals Trail. The trail then gets easier for a little ways. Then things really get interesting! There is a section of armored trail around a hundred yards long that is brutal but mercifully short. Mountain bikers will need very good bike handling skills for the descent. Sensible riders with less than expert skills will elect to walk it.

The other option is to start with the tough climb and enjoy the long descent taking the loop counter-clockwise. A third option is to do it clockwise up to the gnarly bit and reverse course for a second crack at the fun parts. All are good options and Burnt Mountain Trail is a real treat.
