Description

Trap Creek is usually ridden along with Swamp Creek to make a loop passing Marten Lake. Trap Creek trail is a very moderate climb, passing through meadows and boggy areas, and you'll make very good progress until the very end. Near the end, the trail gets steeper and more challenging, but it is rideable. You'll be rewarded with a view of Marten Lake.

The trail continues beyond Marten Lake and basically turns into a hike-a-bike to reach the ridge. The last part of the trail does not see a lot of traffic since most people visit the lake and then descend Swamp Creek. Early in the season, the mosquitoes at Marten Lake can be overwhelming, so be prepared if you want to spend time at the lake. Once away from the lake the bugs are very tolerable.

As mentioned earlier, loop onto Swamp Creek for the descent, or head back down Trap Creek.
