Family Friendly Starting from the Maple Lake East parking lot, this is an easy roll that is mostly downhill. This trail may be a challenging climb for younger riders but there are no significant obstacles.

Description

This short singletrack trail runs downhill from the north entrance near 95th St. and features a low table top and views of Maple Lake. The south terminus of the trail meets with the north terminus of Hickory Smoked at a paved path. The paved path runs between the Maple Lake East parking lot and Maple Lake itself. At the bottom of the paved path is a small fishing pier that marks the location of a temporary house built for the film The Lakehouse.

In the downhill direction, this is an easy trail suitable for first timers and children who are new to mountain biking.

Maple Lake East linking to Hickory smoked. GREAT technique and cornering building trail. On this trail I am limited by how good I can take the corners (ride with caution as always). The whooping you hear is so I do not surprise other bikers.
