Trail Description
About this trail
Flat wide trail around lake for warm up then head east up fireroad. Solid climb to antenna towers. Now the fun, lots of windy switchback single track all the way down to lake level. Alternate path, go up double track on north end of lake, to the north of look out parking lot, difficult climb to another antenna tower. At top take trail off back side (away from lake) and singletrack back to parking lot off of Alamo. If you run into a bridge followed by locked gate, don't worry retrace path southward and take first interesection to the right. Follow trail back to parking lot. Can't get lost on this ride. Good 1-2 hour after work fun ride. Lots of thorning weeds in summer but good year round.

Review: Ride is 4.6 miles from parking lot to Third Tower and back. No way to make this a 10 mile ride unless you loop the lake twice. Uphill is tough either on the fire road or the track next to it. 875 feet over two miles with a max grade of 12%. Downhill is narrow lots of switchbacks some exposure not really possible to really get good speed. I would say downhill is intermediate. Will not be back, your mileage may vary.

Review: Good ride if you are around a 30-45 min drive or less. There are several different loops to take. The one I find the best is to climb past each tower (microwave) until you reach the third one. Then take the single track downhill on the backside of that tower all the way down. It equates to about 20 minutes of downhill. There is also a fire road to the top. The sticker bushes are much better this year and have been pushed back from the edges of the trails.

Review: Took this trail twice in July. Went up road to the tower, which was a nice climb. Then, at the top, the trail goes into a single track all the way back. It was about 45 minutes up and 45 minutes down and back to the parking lot (free lot!). Problems: Too many stickers - first ride: one flat tire. second ride: both flat. Don't wear shorts - legs went through huge sticker bushes and at the end of the ride - my legs were bloody. A couple spots required walking. Overall, it is about a 2.5 out of 5 but I rounded up.

Review: I do not really like this trail. It is a great trail for running and hiking. Personally I feel that the trail is way too narrow. The ground itself is not too technical. Be careful, there are a lot of hikers on weekend. If I am in a hurry, I will do this trail. But I would rather do rockville than this one. After all, it is my personal preference. The fire road clib up to the antenna was good, though...
