A Non-Motorized Trail

Description

Take the off ramp exit on top of 4th of July Pass. Take a right and follow the signs to the Parking Lot. The Parking lot has plenty of room for many cars and has a vault style bathroom. This area has been designated as a Nordic Ski and Snowshoeing area. During the summer though, hikers, horseback riders and mountain bikers use these trails.

The ride starts on Forest Service Trail 3016. The trailhead lies at the western end of the parking lot.

This part of the trail is very fast rolling and wide. This trail is an old decommissioned forest road that now has turned into some smooth singletrack down the center. There are a few little views of the surrounding mountains but mostly you'll be sight seeing in a beautiful, lush green forest that is quiet and peaceful.

Along the way you'll come across warming huts and a bathroom that are used during the winter for the nordic skiers and those who snowshoe. You'll climb a little and then descend a little as you roll along this 5.2 mile trail section.

You'll know you are near the end of the trail when you come upon a large, A-framed warming hut labeled Ian's Eagle Hut. Pass the warming hut on the left and the trail continues up to the left about 30 feet pass the hut. The trail climbs sharply at this point using a couple of small switchbacks and it gets a little brushy. Continue up a little more and you'll pop out onto an old forest road. This forest road is Forest Road 1575 and will only show up on older maps.

You can go back the way you came exploring some of the other trails in the Nordic Ski Park or take a left and follow the forest roads to you vehicle.
Enjoy!
