A combination of mostly flat single and doubletrack.

Overview

Do not ride when muddy. The lake manager will not be pleased.

Tall grass is burned in the winter, avoid riding those days. KSS will try to make users aware of these times.

$6 day use, $40 yearly pass. No horses or motorized vehicles. Bikes not allowed on the lake dam.
This trail is a fantastic addition to the south side trails that have been at Santa Fe Lake for 25 years! The combination of dirt access road and singletrack gives an opportunity for a breather between the twisting and turning in each wooded section. Due to camping areas and other lake restrictions, we built all the singletrack we could, but hopefully new trail opportunities will present themselves in the future!
Family Friendly: This is a great section to introduce beginners to singletrack, but is still great for experienced riders
Dogs: Leashed

Description

This side of the creek has to use a combination of both singletrack and the access road. You start out on the south side parking area and ride around to the north side using Santa Fe Lake Road; please use caution and obey traffic laws.

From there, you'll dive into the singletrack on the south side of the main access road. After a while, you'll drop out onto the access road and use that to travel all the way up to the north of the property. There you'll access the singletrack for a mile and a half before using the access road again to get back to the south section of trail. It makes sense when you get there, trust me.
