Description

Right now (as of summer 2019), it is hard to find. Park or ride to the Lizard Creek Access Parking lot. Go over the train tracks. Make an immediate right on the not very noticeable path. Go past the no trespassing sign. Don't worry, you have permission to be on the trail. Enjoy the challenging climbs, some real exciting downhills, and an awesome finish that the builder calls "candy."

Loved this trail. The climb to the top of Upper Lizard was 100% worth the ride through Flow and Candy. Lower Lizard was an easy, but fun finish to UL. 8.1mi — 1h 22m
