Overview

This is a fun, mixed terrain trail ride. It includes some singletrack with a few mixed ATV trails. It's good for the beginner, but has some challenge for more experienced riders as well.

Need to Know

Run lower tire pressure and be prepared for flats - the rocky sections can be hard on tires.

Description

Leave from the parking area and follow the trail from the dirt lot. You'll pedal uphill slightly and see some different turn offs, but remaining on the trail straight ahead will take you around the mountain.

After the initial small climb there is some short downhill with rocks. A little more uphill leads to some downhill rocky sections.

Another picture of Mars. The terrain is rough but the drops are good.

What you can't see in this picture is just how steep this trail is. The camera is facing the trail at the angle that it's in. Very steep but rideable. Welcome to Mars.

Very steep trail but rideable! Some areas have soft sand but if you enjoy speed then you'll like this long winding trail. We cleared a lot of the big rocks and boulders out of the way.
