The Rose Valley Lake Loop is a great ride that circles the Rose Valley Lake through a network of exciting trails and great views. It offers switchbacked climbs to terrific vistas, and fun, flowy singletrack.
The Rose Valley Lake Loop starts at the end of Rosewood Drive along the Reservoir Road access trail before meeting up with Daze of Roses, which is a fun switchbacked climb. The ride starts with the Lake Loop, but after following the lake and taking in some great views, it veers off to Sweet Street for a quick climb and some steep switchbacks down to connect back up with the Lake Loop.
Once back on Lake Loop, there are a few trails that venture off to the left, but stay close to the lake as you go around the north section of the lake. The next climb is up Swamp Donkey, which is a series of switchbacks and great views. Take a minute at the top of the climb to look back over the lake before breaking off to The Elevator. A couple quick connections including Grant's Grind, and WooHoo before ripping down RSVP.
