Overview

The route has a lot of rocky challenges and a little flow. It's also a remote experience with very little foot/bike traffic. The recommended direction is clockwise from the north parking lot.

Need to Know

Parking lots are located at the north and south ends of the lake. The main lot is south and has porta-potties. The trail system is rideable in snow.

Description

This is an easy to follow route that's made up of the East Shore Trail and West Shore Trail. Together, the trails flank the shores of a beautiful lake. Throughout the ride, you'll experience purpose-built mountain bike trails that provide plenty of rocky challenges (aka flow-gnar).
