“Climb a fire road to access a fantastic singletrack downhill with smooth turns and scenic lake views”— Lee Guarino
From there, the road will climb steeply for a short bit and switchback to a mellow more sustainable grade with occasional lake views out to your right. Continue following the Gas Line Road for about another mile or so until another dirt road joins in from the left. Just past this intersection is a pretty obvious open area that functions as a motorcycle turn around. At the South end of this open area is the start of the Rise and Shine DH.
The trail starts with a mellow section of flattish terrain, then shortly after, it dives into a series of turns with fun flow, fantastic lake views, and a decent amount of pitch. As the trail mellows and you return to the coverage of the denser forest a trail will merge in from the right.
This is a singletrack that can be climbed and takes you back to the Gas Line Road just above the creek crossing. (This trail makes the ride a pretty fun lollipop route if you don't want to climb 267 and the Gas Line Road or shuttle to the Gas Line road.) Continue on past this intersection and through a bit more flowy fun and bear right at the next intersections to end at the cul-de-sac of Cambridge Dr. (Bearing left at the major intersections takes you down a bit further toward the 'old mill' and the fire road heading North from the grid at Deer St.)
These trails are open to motorized use, but most of the traffic is bikes.
