Starting at the parking grounds, head onto Grindstone Lake Trail
(counterclockwise). After 2,5 kilometers, turn onto the Alfred Hale Connector
up to the top, before rejoining the Grindstone Mesa Loop
trail (also counterclockwise), flowing into the Grindstone Ridge Connector
At the branch following Grindstone Ridge Connector
, turn right down the final section of the Grindstone Lake Trail
that winds down to the Grindstone Lake Trail
. The last few hundred meters is the Fisherman's Trail
back up to the parking ground.
Open to hikers.
Except for the last few hundred meters, it is a complete singletrack loop that contains nearly everything: smooth and rough passages, rocks, plant roots, steep turns, flowing curves, lighter and heavy uphill, fast downhill sections and a few little bumps. What I like the most is that the whole loop is rideable - you'll never have to push your bike.
