A wide, well-maintained trail heading through the woods that is good to learn bike control on.

Chris Jordan

Overview

Day use only.
This is the only mountain bike trail I know of in the area. It is forested and the trail is made of good compact bark with very few obstacles, and only a couple of slightly steep parts.

There are many amenities in the park, which makes this an ideal spot for a day of fun. Amenities include a variety of barbecue grills, a boat ramp where many enjoy fishing, a pavilion, picnic area, and vault toilets. Potable water is also available.
Family Friendly: Boating, hiking, fishing, swimming, or biking allowed in the area.
Dogs: Leashed

Need to Know

A parking permit is required, which will cost you $4 daily or an annual pass is available for $30.

Description

From the parking lot, you cannot see the trail. Ride south across the top of the dam and find the start of the trail.

Once under the forest canopy, you'll find lots of ferns and logs and small native flowers, like trillium. There are a couple of steep parts at the beginning, but it gets easier as you go. There are two or three bridges to cross that can be a little slick, but the bits of flowing water are pretty.

You can ride out and back on the trail. You could also head north a very short distance on the dirt road, BLM 25-5-22 and connect with the paved road, Cooper Creek Road, then ride that road west (over the north side of the reservoir) to return to the parking lot. This trail does not connect with any other trails.

The land surrounding the trail is private property, so please be respectful and stay on the trail.

Pretty easy trail. Well maintained. Remember to bring $4 for parking. On north aspect of valley slope and forested so very shady in summer. 5mi — 2h 00m

Feels more designed for hikers than bikes. Multiple descents into hairpin turns with steep climbs. I wouldn't start off with this one. 5.6mi
