Dry - 1 downed tree across the trail towards the beginning of Flume but it can easily be stepped over..... possibly rideable. History

Getting forecast...

Steep and loose: a technical descent or a brute of a climb connection to Galena Ditch Trail.

Description

Rock Island Trail is the eastern extension of Rock Island Road. The trail continues in the same vein as Rock Island Road initially before plummeting a rock-strewn 1/2 mile to the valley floor where the trail intersects Galena Ditch Trail. Below this point is a doubletrack leading south to Georgia Pass Road; however with the recent (2016) completion of Galena Ditch Trail to the southeast this access may be closed as it traverses private property.

The west end of the trail is a complete deception for the rest of the trail. When the trail begins to descend it is basically a dry stream bed with loose rock on a pretty steep pitch. As a connector from Lincoln Park also using Rock Island Road, riding it west to east, it serves a nice purpose and leaves you on the delightful Galena Ditch. You definitely don't want to go east to west. Sep 30, 2017
