This trail is also known as "Boy Scout."
There are a variety of parking places to access this trail. It's plenty of awesome trail for a short ride hot lap, or a introduction to some of the more challenging GWNF riding. If you are looking for a logical step up from Tillman West
and Narrowback Mountain Loop
, this one is worth a try.
Conveniently located amongst several great trails to connect with, you can break up the road riding on the Lookout Mountain Loop
. Trimble can be ridden both ways, but we recommend you ride it clockwise. Pedal to the waste dump site at the foot of Todd Lake dam where there's a bridge and trail marker sign visible from FR 95.
The trail is off-camber and skinny enough to keep you honest with your steering game & speed management. The climb is entirely rideable if you have adequate fitness. Since Trimble is off-camber, the downhill side is a constant hazard to be aware of. Luckily, the downhill side of the trail is not too exposed for the majority of the climb. There's a false summit, with a short descent, before the final climbing section to the true beginning of the downhill.
Hold on for some fast, off-camber descending and a couple of exposed spots up high. There are plenty of terrain features, drops, roots, turns and FAST sections. This is a super fun and beautiful section of trail.
