The trails at Padden Lake are multi-use and are open between 6:00 a.m. - 10:00 p.m. Bikers are allowed on the trails, but they are frequented more by hikers, joggers, dog walkers, and equestrian users. With so many other trail users, this area is better suited to casual riding, especially given its close proximity to Galbraith Mountain. Dogs are required to be leashed except in designated areas.
A gravel road following the ups and downs of a ridgeline. This makes a poor trade-off for the effort. The entrance is steep with awkward water bars and unexciting undulating elevation the rest of the way.
