“This is a fast, flowing loop system that is 90% well-groomed singletrack.”— MTB Project Staff
Family Friendly Fishing, Boating, Pavilions w/picnic tables. Drinking water, portable restroom on premises.
Take the singletrack left, or continue up the road to the top and go left to re-enter the COGS loop. This next short section of the COGS trail eventually pops out on a doubletrack connector. The Bill's Creek loop and Lake loop trails branch off to the right. The preferred route is to continue past the entrance to Bill's Creek and Lake. Enter Lake to the right and ride that loop, then Bill's Creek, then return to the trailhead reversing the direction of the ride out.
