Overview

These trails are a mixture of easy/intermediate and could be enjoyed by all levels. While you'll spend much of your time riding with ferns at your feet, blackberries within reach, and shade from towering trees, there are various openings with tempting views.

You'll want to make sure to stop at Ship Rock on Ship Rock Trail and climb up the ladder that has been provided and get a glimpse of the view, no spyglass needed.

Description

The trailhead is to the left of the first parking lot that you'll come upon. The Gray Flats North Trail starts out relatively flat and steadily increases in elevation as you go; however, the trails flow well, so it is not very noticeable. As you come to the end of the first trail, you'll come to a steep gravel hill to your left that leads to Piney Creek on Gray Flats South Trail.

To continue to Ridge South Trail, you'll turn left and want to be cautious as the hill is extremely rutted out. You'll soon come to a new trailhead on your right that will begin to take you back up the mountain. As you start to climb, you'll almost immediately come to an area that has water run off and is extremely rocky and slick. Once you complete this climb, you'll come to various trailheads that link well. These trails have a good variety of elevation, rocks, creek views, and bridges.

History & Background

The Mill Ruins Trail allows you to see the ruins of the Alfred Beckley Mill.
