Need to Know

Unless you are experienced and or have high endurance, stop at the Tiki Hut for a few and fuel up (eat your power bar/drink/rest and shoot the breeze with your fellow MTB riders) and then, move on.

Description

From the fork, you'll follow the singletrack and then you'll meet a snake trail - zig zag - (up hill from here for about 0.5 mile) then you'll go downhill. WARNING: At the bottom of the hill, you'll come across a wooden bridge (last time it was hidden by a big bush) so slow down since you'll need to lift your front tire to go over this bridge.

After that bridge, get ready to climb...it's a doozy, but rewarding when you get to the top as you'll enjoy the beauty. Here, riders take a break under the Tiki Hut and shoot the breeze and move forward.

If you want to follow the main track, you'll need to go right if you are looking at the lake, or left if your back is facing the lake.

CAREFUL now, this is a technical drop (yes, drop, cause that is how it feels) with a few sharp turns but levels out the rest of the way...still singletrack, lots of fun.

Fun trail that provides access to many other trails in the area. Some challenging sections and a few steep climbs, too - not really for beginners. 13.5mi
