Description

The Bicentennial Trail can be ridden both directions & either way, you'll have an equal amount of steep climbing to keep your heart pounding. To get to each end of the trail, you'll need to climb on the North Fork River Trail or Cutler Creek Trail which are both jeep trails.

For more miles, you have a choice of parking either at the northern Mule Shoe Trail parking lot, just below it down the North Fork Park rd, or at the main northeast North Fork Park campgrounds.

For less jeep road riding, I prefer parking at the main northeast North Fork Park campgrounds & climb up the North Fork River Trail. From the main campgrounds, follow the jeep road to the left & ride around the metal gate. After a few hundred yards, take the ST on the left to start the long steep climb up Bicentennial trail. At mile .71, you'll reach the junction of the Middle Link trail to take you back down to the North Fork River Trail. Continue straight on the trail to climb up to the top at mile 1.28. Then you start the descend on Bicentennial trail until you cross the Cutler Flat Trail junction on the right side at mile 1.46. Continue straight downhill until you have to cross the Cutler Creek, try to ride in shin deep water & big river rocks to the sandbar & hike a bike over more water & up the side banks.

After drying your soggy socks & shoes, proceed to the left until you merge with the Cutler Creek Trail (jeep trail). So for the next .25 mile down the jeep trail there might be quite an overflow from the creek making it wet & muddy. Once through the swampy jeep road, you'll start climbing a hill to get to the northwest bowery & campgrounds. Shortly down the jeep trail, you'll see the ST Cutler Spring Trail that will connect with the Ben Lomond Trail. Staying straight on the Cutler Creek Trail will end at the other parking area below & turning right up North Fork Park road to lead to the northern Mule Shoe & Mule Ear TH & parking lot. To get back to your car, go straight on North Fork Park road & stay left to get back to the main northeast North Fork Park campgrounds.
