“A quick overview of the best trails at Mistletoe State Park with some advanced features.”— Lost Justpastnowhere
Rock Dam Trail is definitely more advanced than Cliatt Creek Nature Trail Loop with several creek crossings. These will keep advanced ridees on their toes, but others might get wet toes. After about two miles, you'll enter a gully ride that takes you down towards the rock dam over an unnamed creek. At the entrance to the gully, there is another trail that branches off to the left, but the main trail actually goes through the gully.
If you haven't ridden the rock dam before, you'll definitely want to scout it before as it is probably only rideable by experts. Keep in mind the dam will be slick where it's covered by water. After the dam, a short climb begins before a fun, steep but too short descent towards the Clarks Hill Lake.Shortly after the descent, you'll reach a creek and follow it until you see the sign for the trail crossing. There are several places where it looks like the trail might cross the creek, but there is only one official crossing.
After the creek crossing, the Rock Dam Trail continues back towards the lake. After you pass the lake for the second time, you'll rejoin the Cliatt Creek Nature Trail Loop which takes you back to the main parking area. This section features some climbing on heavily rooted, cross-sloped trail with some off-camber sections, but nothing too difficult.
Once you cross the main park road on Cliatt Creek Nature Trail Loop, the trail becomes an easy ride through the forest. First it descends toward the lake, and then you have just two short climbs back to the main parking lot.
