“A wide beginners "singletrack" along Lake Oroville.”— Shayne Holderby
The turnaround for this trail is in a parking area that is typically used by equestrians to access the area reserved for horses EAST of the parking area. Be aware lots of horses in the area and if you do plan to go further EAST there is only about 1.5 miles of fire road left all other areas are Horse only.
The track winds gradually making it easy to see any upcoming traffic and the trail is wide enough for three bike abreast to pass easily. The track crosses a road twice but it's easy to see where it picks up again. This is a really pretty trail to ride in spring, will likely be very hot trail in summer during mid-day. Would recommend morning ride.
Probably one of the best beginner trails you'll find anywhere and highly recommend to anyone just starting. Starting climb will be a little rough on a new rider but it's short and remainder of ride is fairly flat.
