A good trail to just get out and hammer on.

Kenny Davis

Overview

Family Friendly: A trail with no big climbs, nothing really technical, and nice flow.
Dogs: Leashed

Description

The trail makes a loop around Harmon Lake. Starting from the boat ramp hit the singletrack going across the dam. Once over the dam, the trail meanders in and out of tree groves for a while. The trail slowly starts to turn more into open rolling fields and fewer trees.

Once across the bridge, you get into a lot of smooth flowing trail in these open fields with the occasional tree grove. The section from the dam to the bridge is the most difficult and after the bridge the trail is easier. The more difficult section is not that bad, so most people should be fine on the trail.

There is no major climbing on this trail and nothing overly technical. Signage is good and seeing how it is a loop, it would be hard to get lost. There are some places with really scenic views of the lake, especially around sunset.

There are leaves in the wooded areas making it a bit slick in the woods. The rest of the trail is excellent, hard packed and fast. 13mi — 1h 00m

I hit my left pedal on a rock hidden in the tall grass on the 4.2 mile Epic Trail loop. The pedal was able to be straightened using other big rock... — 9h 30m

Getting forecast...

The route shown on the map/gpx includes the Epic Loop, which is 4 miles of some of the best parts of the trail (it includes the best downhills and the only climbs). You can bail at the junction of the Epic Loop, which is well signed (although it does come up pretty fast when riding at speed), and the "short loop" is just under 10 miles. I prefer riding clockwise, as it provides better downhill. Oct 25, 2017
