Description

The trail that started it all! This was one of the first machine cut lift accessed bike trails in the west! The Summit Trail is the main bike route between the summit & lift plaza offering great views & an easier way from the summit than our other bike trails (caution there are no EASY bike trails). The Summit Trail is a two-way trail. Uphill traffic is not recommended from Noon to 5pm during the operating season. Otherwise please yield to uphill traffic.

Average Ride Time: Uphill ~2 hours, downhill ~45 minutes

The trail narrows and the tree roots can be a challenge, not too much though, just a warning.

Did this ride with my kids 7 & 8. While strenuous for them due to length, they absolutely loved it.
