The Baden Lake trail map show Badin Lake Traikl (Trail #90 on the map) as being an "Easy" 5.6 mile loop. The trail leaves is accessible from Arrowhead Campground, and the trailhead is marked as open to hikers and bikes. There is also a $5/day trail use fee.
This was the least fun and most unridable trail I've ever ridden, and I've ridden a lot of places. Of course there are sections which can be ridden, but many that are not due to roots, extreme rocky sections, and other features which are not rideable, at least my most mortals.
We actually bailed out about the 4 mile mark and took the park roads back to our car. There are many other trails in the area which may be better, but this trail is only suitable for hiking.
To be fair, the downloadable map list this as being a hiking trail, but I trusted the official park sign at the trailhead. Please trust me and check out some of the other trails in the area.
Nothing. This is a hiking trail, not a true multi-use trail.
