Description

The Phillips Lake North Shore Trail traverses the northern banks of Phillips Reservoir connecting Mason Dam Boat Launch, Union Creek Campground, Social Security Point, Mowich Loop to a western access point near Hudspeth Lane.

There are great views along the trail while traveling through young-growth ponderosa pine forests, grasslands, meadows and historic rock dredge piles bordering the reservoir. The numerous coves and inlets make it easy to see wildlife along the ride.There are only short uphills on this trail and overall it is very easy. There is some exposure along the way and this makes the trail more of an intermediate ride.

This trail can be ridden with the Phillips Lake South Shore Trail to make a large loop. You'll just need to ride on Hudspeth Lane to connect the two trails.

Dry - These trails could be a little better marked. And there are no driving directions. Plenty of free camping in the area! Wish I knew that last night... come on guys
