Description [Suggest Changes]

From the main parking lot follow Collarbone downhill going straight through the first trail crossing to access Rocky Logging Road, making sure to turn sharply left once through the first short steep downhill section. Rocky Logging Road is full of loose rocks and muddy, slick riding. At the end of the trail stay right and cross over the bridge and across Issaqueena Lake Road. Just to the right of the parking lot is where Wounded Knee starts. Head up the trail, arriving at the top to continue straight onto Wounded Road. At the end of Wounded Road, continue straight onto Wildcat Technical. Wildcat Technical is a full speed trail with lots of fun, flowing singletrack.

At the bottom of the trail, walk across the bridge above Wildcat Creek and continue right onto Wildcat Logging Road. There is a shallow creek crossing (rideable) where the road turns into Rapids Logging Road. Near the end of the road take a left onto Rapids Trail. This trail can have a lot of loose debris and stones in the downhill sections. Nearing Six Mile Creek, stay left where the trail splits to arrive at the creek crossing, which requires you to get your feet wet.

Continuing a short distance, stay left when reaching Six Mile Creek Logging Road, taking an immediate right uphill onto Pot Belly Pig Logging Road. This grinds mostly uphill until taking a left onto Pig Horse. Finishing Pig Horse take a right onto Spotted Horse Logging Road (Gate 5). Take a left onto Bombs Away, towards the end take a left onto Loopty Loop (unmarked) continuing straight onto Loopty Logging Road.

When at the junction of Grinder Fireroad take a right onto Weedeater (unmarked). Finding yourself at a fire road, take a left, followed by another left to get back on the singletrack. Take a left where the trail terminates onto Loopty Logging Road following it until you take a right onto Grinder Fireroad. Shortly after, take the trail on the left marked Ungrinder ( Grinder Singletrack). At the bottom of the hill take a right onto Spotted Horse Logging Road (Gate 5), then a quick left onto Issaqueena Lake Road. Follow this until taking a left into Wildcat Creek Picnic Area Entrance Road, then a right back onto Wildcat Technical. This uphill starts steep but lets off after a bit, reaching the clearing at the top, take a right onto Chain Loop. At the trail junction with Chainbreaker, ride Chain Loop counter clockwise for better flow. Arriving back at Chainbreaker take it down to Dalton Road on left, then follow it back up until you reach Wounded Knee on the right, taking it downhill.

At the bottom, cross the bridge and stay right reaching Issaqueena Lake Trail. Arriving at the dam, take East Dam Road uphill to a trail marked Dam Rd. Trail ( Pine Tree Alley) on left, after a while this turns into Pine Tree Loop, follow this, continuing straight/left until Summer Rain. Continue downhill taking a slight right onto Lawrence (not 170 degrees) keeping left until taking the Rocky Extension on the left. Take this back uphill making a slight left back onto Lawrence. Follow this back to the car.
