Is anyone completing this trail system? The offline maps show a complete loop around the reservoir and it looks like a lot of great riding. Only about 25% appears here and it's begging to be completed and made a Featured Ride. Jan 13, 2015

Bridges are missing a slat but still ride-able. There is an ice flow on the trail which is difficult to traverse. Recommend parking at the top of the mountain. Jan 7, 2018 Jan 8, 2018
