“A challenging but rewarding trail with a great technical descent.”— Matt Thoele

Need to Know
Starting at Nott Creek, head south out of the parking lot. Until you hit the doubletrack, this portion of the trail is exposed and loose, then it rolls a little with easy technical features. Speed down the doubletrack over the creek and start climbing past the lake, cabin, and camp sites. Once the singletrack turns back to doubletrack, the climb becomes more technical.
When you reach the saddle at the top of the climb, the ride changes quite a bit. You'll end up on a rocky, rooted, bombed out technical trail that zooms you through the woods and over a creek multiple times. There are many stream crossings, some rideable, some not so much. Once you hit doubletrack again it's pretty much over and you grind back to the car.
Don't forget to pay the State Park!
