“A tour of Mosquito Valley Creek and excellent beginner loop.”— SVVC IMBA
Family Friendly Low grade climbing with very few rocks.
Starting from the Water Authority parking lot, head down the gravel road to the large intersection of the Remington Access Road and the Raccoon Mountain Trail, take a right onto the Raccoon Mountain Trail to begin your journey. The trail is marked with green diamonds with some directional arrows and some mileage signs. For most beginners, this trail is best CounterClockwise, though many people use it both directions.
This trail is the connector to access Bower Fields Trails, and that intersection has multiple colored markers and arrows.
After a couple nice bridge crossings, you'll begin a slow climb with a few stopping spots, and a switchback. Once you make it to the top, enjoy a faster rolling trail along the mountainside and then you'll descend back to the Remington Access Road. Here, take a left and head down the gravel access road to the same intersection you came to at the very beginning, take a right and head back to your car.
If you decide to take the clockwise route, you'll have a few punchy climbs to get to the top, and a very gradual return back to the lot.
This loop is very beginner/kid friendly, enjoy a day with your family here.
