Description

There's parking and a public bathroom at the Summit Park trail entrance.

The trail starts gently along a gravel trail which is frequented by residents of the neighborhood - please be considerate. Toward the end of the neighborhood the trail climbs more steeply. The descent is well-maintained singletrack with plenty of switchbacks.

A great little section of track. There's two ways to approach it: from the trailhead at summitpark drive, or from Bommer. The former starts off with a slight descent for most of the track, followed by a steep descent with several switchbacks littered with technical sections here and there. After this you can choose to go through Bommer, which doesn't have much in descents or climbs except for a descent near the end. Or, choose to go out through West Fork. The latter, you start off at Bommer, which has long sections of nothing followed by a ascent up the previously mentioned switchbacks. At the top, it's a straight descent to the Turtle trail head, for about 3km. Not technical at all, although be aware of trail erosion and lose sand at corners. Feb 8, 2019
