Need to Know

This trail is shared with motorized vehicles. The trail can be very busy on weekends. The trial itself is in good condition with only occasional rock gardens. The portion of the trail through Thousand Springs Valley does cross a spring about every 30 yards or so, depending on the time of year this trail can be muddy. This trail is best ridden July to early November.

Description

This is a doubletrack trail that starts at a junction along the Hilton Creek FS 067 trail and follows FS trail 077 and then 076 to Castle Lake. The trail starts with a moderate climb up a forested hill for half a mile. Then the trail drops down a little for a cruise up the scenic Thousand Springs Valley for approximately 2 miles. The last half mile of the trial follows FS 076 for a drop down to the lake with some scenic overlooks of the lake, Piney Peak, and Temple Peak on the way down.
