A stunning high-altitude loop for those who love a bit of exposure.

Overview

May 15 to Nov 15 due to trail closures from snow.
This is a beautiful route offering up a little bit of everything Scout Mountain has on tap. This ride is filled with buttery smooth, flowy downhills, rocky climbs, and everything in-between to test your mountain biking abilities.

Crestline is cut on the side of the mountain and is not for the faint of heart.

Need to Know

As you are driving the East Mink Creek road you'll see a sign that says Crestline Trail at one of the switchbacks, it is a dirt road, but very short and tame.

Description

From the parking lot head up the Crestline trail until you see a T-intersection about 1/2 mile in, then go right. This will connect you to the road. Ride up the paved road, through the campground, and onto East Fork. East Fork is an ATV trail and rides up through the pines with a couple of open meadows allowing you to see the surrounding scenery.

East Fork ends at the Scout Mountain Top road. From there, head left on the dirt road and follow it until you come to the Crestline trail, which will be on your right. This is beautiful singletrack carved through rock ledges on the east side of Scout Mountain. Once you are off the mountain the trail continues downhill through the forest. There are some rock gardens and some buttery smooth sections - a little bit of everything.

This loop can be done in either direction, however, it is more popular to ride it as mapped.
