Description

This trail forms the final section of the full 18-mile loop at Starkey Wilderness mountain bike trail system. From Parking Lot #10, it will take a while to reach the start of Twisted Pine at Marker Post #37. From the end of the trail, at Marker Post #49, head north to return to the parking area.

There are no climbs/descents to speak of, but fun can be had by keeping your speed up and trying to hold the endless turns (similar to Rudy's Ramble). This trail is equally enjoyable backwards where it continues on after Marker Post #37 to Deliverance. There are bailouts along the way including the Bobcat Trail or the Powerline corridor (between Markers #36-37) which bring you back north to the main Starkey Wilderness Bike Path.

The mountain bike trails at Starkey Park are built and maintained by the SWAMP Club organization.
