Description

A rough and ugly singletrack most often used to connect from the Jones Creek trail to Dutch Creek trail intersections. This trail features lots of climbing with some loose and rutted sections, and hike-a-bike sections, but is reasonably rideable by a good cyclist. Be aware, this trail is often ridden by motorcycles.

The trail can be accessed in a lot of ways- Goulding Creek, Jones Creek, Dutch Creek, Andrews Lake, and the top of Purgatory.

Pinkerton Flagstaff Trail feels as if you are never truly on a sustained climb or descent. It feels as if constantly going up and down but has sprinkled fun sections throughout. You get the whole mix from switchbacks, rocks, roots, overgrown brush, high speed flow, low speed tech, and more. Worth it to ride worked into a loop but not what I would recommended as just an end to end for fun trail. Very beautiful views throughout though!
