Need to Know
To get to Acker Park, head south from Gurley on Virginia street. Acker Park parking lot is on your left before the cemetery.
Ride across the bridge up Hilltop Trail to Ridge Trail. Hit Autumn Breeze Road (paved) on through the neighborhood and out Nathan Ln to Senator Hwy. Go left uphill for about a 1/4 mile. As the hill starts to top out, look for Old Senator Road (dirt road). Stay on Old Senator Road for a little less than a mile making a left onto South Old Senator Road. Follow this around until you intersect Feldmeier Trail #330.
Heading left up Feldmeier Trail #330, there's a bit more climbing now on singletrack. Intersecting Goldwater Lakes Trail #396, go right and follow it all the way. Taking Hidden Valley Trail #374 to your right routes you around the very busy School House Gulch / White Spar campground and helps you avoid hikers.
At the bottom of Hidden Valley Trail #374, go left on Apple Blossom Trail #373 out to White Spar Road and back to town.
