Rolling, buffed-out singletrack along a forested lake shore.

Overview

This ride consists primarily buffed out rolling singletrack. Starting just past the Aspen Grove Marina, this trail follows the narrows between Strawberry Reservoir and Soldier Creek Reservoir.

Expect a few grunty climbs but primarily rolling singletrack.

Need to Know

You can park for free along the dirt road that gives you access to the trail. However, it is iffy for 2 wheel drive. You need to be concerned about clearance but we got in there with a 4-wheel Subaru (which doesn't have tons of clearance).

To be safe you can always park at the Marina and ride up the paved road on the right as you leave the Marina parking lot (FS 90). Then drop down the dirt road to access the trail. However, you'll need to pay the parking fee.

Description

This is a gem and reported as a must ride in various other mountain bike trail online resources. This is because this is rolling buffed out fairly easy singletrack with a variety of views that alternates between shoreline trails and trails running through aspen forest.

You start out at the bottom of a very short dirt road. Don't go past the No Trespassing signs, if you start back up hill on the doubletrack Jeep road, you've gone too far. The trail is about 50 feet behind you on the right as you come down the hill.

You climb out to the north on nice well defined singletrack that does a bit of rolling up and down. Some grunt climbs, but these are short. You'll reach Badger Point for your first 300 degree view of Soldier Reservoir.

You then continue on the singletrack that leads into the forest. There will be a variety of ups and downs, some grunt climbs (also short), and some intermediate level descents.

There, the trail continues to follow the various inlets of the reservoir, interspersed with outstanding views.

It is recommended that you stop at Renegade Point. While the trail continues to the west, it eventually drops down into sage brush and when over grown it is difficult to find the trail.

The out and back ride to Renegade Point is what most people do and it has the highlights.

This trail is fun but downed trees caused it to be a pain. Didn't do the whole thing, just a bit past the Narrows view. Trail could use some love. Jun 9, 2016
