Description

This doubletrack starts just up the road from the 805 Cabin. Take 805 Spur, located at the end of Riverside Trail, up past the north end of Long Creek Trail and northward onto the Main Loop DoubleTrack.

When starting from the 805 Cabin, 805 Spur skirt the trees and gets right into a steep climb. While climbing, you'll see Long Creek Trail access to your left. Follow the road up to the top, you'll ride through the fields for a bit and will eventually come up to a trail marker.

Here, you'll take the less-used doubletrack to the right. This should take you out on the finger of land and back towards the river and take you steeply down for a short bit. You'll cross over a box culvert and then climb up this hill. Once you crest the hill, you should see Sunrise Trail, which will take you right into the trees.
