June through October are guaranteed; it can be snowy outside of these dates.
A great after-work route or an extension of the Big Kahuna Ride
, this trail is a great topper for those looking for mileage. You can either ride this as an out-and-back from the lake using Monte Verde
and Lady Slipper
, or ride these as a loop from the town center.
To access this trail, begin by accessing FR 76 from HWY 434. From here, head west up through a green gate (be sure to close it behind you). From the green gate, you'll stay right until you get into a creek bed, stay right again until you arrive at the Lady Slipper
loop, which is ridden clockwise for the best reward.
