Description

The trail is all on BLM land and starts at the parking area located on Fishtrap Rd. Enter through the gate and continue southwest on the existing doubletrack mowed road and signed with "trail" signs. Ride about 1.5 to 2 miles and be watching for a brand new trail exiting on the left (southeast).

Turn left on this trail and enjoy this moderately technical section of the trail as it first heads towards Fishtrap Lake and then winds its way through the basalt layers along the lake. The trail is rideable but has several burned trees that have fallen over the trail recently. Since there was a fire here last year, these burned trees will continue to fall in this area.

This trail continues in a southwest direction along the lake and has very scenic views of the lake. The trail goes through a gate then continues to wind its way to a flat plateau about 40 feet directly above the lake. This is a great place for a break while you take in the scenery. The new singletrack becomes old signed doubletrack as it leaves the lake in a northwest direction.

Continue northwest on this doubletrack for a couple miles until you arrive at a parking area with a bathroom. Look for the trail on the northeast side of the outhouse where it becomes singletrack again and heads northeast through a scenic broad valley with a number of small ponds.

After about 1 mile to 1.5 miles, the trail will cross a doubletrack. Look for a cow trail directly across this doubletrack continuing northeast. Follow this very rideable cow trail. Watch your GPS or use the MTB Project mobile app as the cow trail will braid into multiple trails in a couple areas. This cow trail will lead you up and over a low rock ridge and back to your car.
