Trail Description
About this trail
Sweet twisting, winding, 12-18" wide singletrack, mostly in the pines, near Lynx lake. Nothing tech, just go fast and take chances, like riding a roller coaster and trying to keep it on the track, good times.

Review: Visiting over Christmas from Huntington Beach, CA. Nice flowing single track. Not that technical. Has some flowy pump sections, beautiful views and grippy dirt. The climb up to Lynx lake is not too tough with some downhill sections thrown in. From the trail begining you only travel about a mile before crossing Walker Rd, then about a couple of miles more before crossing Lynx, dirt road. From there it is maybe another couple of miles to Lynx Lake. Unlike Southern California, there was very little other traffic on the trail.

Review: Some steep climbing (and fast descending), switchbacks, loose rocks and a wee bit of tech, this trail encompasses a lot of what riders love about Prescott.

Review: Not a bad trail for mt biking but doesn't flow as well as the trails in granite basin. there are some rocky areas along the trail. It is a great work out up hill with lots of tight hair pin corners. cross walker rd at the end of 305 to access trail 297 and keep climbing. There is water available in the campground areas just off the trail.

Review: If camping, you can get on this trail within Lynx Lake USFS campground. Great trail and good to ride both up and down as opposed to other reviewers who say to ride the road up. Moderately rocky but nearly all rideable.

Review: What a relief after riding the sh!tty Groom Creek (307) trail. I did the road up and 305 down, the entrance is right at the 6mile marker on left (east) side of road if I remember correctly, maybe it was the 5mile marker. Honestly, I hate biking on the road so next time I'll definitely enjoy the quiet singletrack climb. Smooth, hardpack, 100% singletrack. Great trail. Can really fly going down. Climb is pretty easy on the road. Can't wait to ride there again next weekend after some night riding in phx mt preserve and bct action this weekend!

Review: abegold got the right idea! We took abegold's advise and take Walker Road to Bannie Mine road for a good 5-mile warm up ride to get on Trail #305 to start our decent. It was a blast. Fast, smooth and fun. A few little tight turns and climbs on the way down, but nothing too much to take out the downhill fun~ Pay $2 parking fee at the Ranch Trail #62 parking area and trailhead off of Walker Road. It’s small amount to pay and it adds up for the park to keep it clean and the trail maintained. The $2 is also good for the whole day at ALL the parks in the Prescott National Forest if you want to venture out to other parks. Going up Walker Road from the Trail #62 parking area and jump on Trail #305 from Bannie Mine Road to decent makes this a 11.5 - 12 mile ride.
