Need to Know

Bridges can be very slippery when wet.

Description

From the kiosk you ride to the right to a bridge crossing the stream and follow a long forgotten county road past a campsite and a pit-toilet. Continue up the hill, the trail will continue to become more narrow as you go.

At approximately mile .5 the trail will turn to the right, leveling out somewhat, where you'll come up on a short rocky section of trail with some steps - use caution. Singletrack trail meanders along the ridge maintaining a very easy grade until you pass the second storm (~mile .75) where the trail will start making it's way downhill through some sharp switchbacks.

When you see the trail going into the rhododendron slow down and use caution, as the trail becomes very tight through this section. After you visit the reservoir cross the stream and follow the old road bed that parallels the stream back to the parking lot.

History & Background

Historic reservoir and remnants of old pump house and water pipe.
