Description

This ride’s gentle trail takes you near the lush green banks of Caples Creek and past huge slabs of granite to Lake Margaret, where you can picnic, swim, and enjoy the mountain scenery. It’s a good outing for those wanting a lot of nature for only a little effort. It is a great beginning conditioning trail.

Trail should be removed from website if info isn't corrected. If you're good at trials riding it's fine but you'll still be hike-a-biking 1/3rd 2.4mi

Great hiking trail, okay MTB trail. Tight turns, technical rock gardens, and rock staircases make this a solid intermediate blue, not green. 1.6mi
