Overview

This is an incredibly scenic and mostly moderate ride along the North Shore of Fallen Leaf Lake. It also crosses a cool bridge across the dam at Taylor Creek.

There is ample parking along the road in dirt pullouts. There is also a day-use paved parking lot at the Fallen Leaf Lake Campground (but it's often full).

Description

Head north off Rd 1212 on Trail 17E74.4 as it bends along the north shore of the lake. Some trails continue to the south of the starting point but may have some private property issues and therefore is not included here. Continue onto Trail 17E74, Trail 17E74.2, and Trail 17E74.1B before looping back on Cathedral Road (1304).

From the end of the trail, on Cathedral Road (1304), you can either reverse the trail back to Fallen Leaf Lake Campground, take Cathedral Road (1304) back to a fire road that leads to the dam across Taylor Creek, or from the dam, take the Moraine Trail back to Fallen Leaf Lake Campground.
