Mountain Biking Bead Lake / Trail #127

****   Add a review
#140 of 1,208 mountain bike trails in Washington
#7,868 in the world

This non-motorized trail follows an old roadbed for 0.5 miles, then winds through a mixed conifer forest and along the shoreline of Bead Lake providing visitors with spectacular views of the lake. A spur trail #127.1 is located at the north end of Bead Lake. It crosses Lodge Creek and follows the shoreline for one mile where it comes to a dead end.

Popular trail with scenic views of the lake. Many bikers make a loop by riding the trail system to the upper trailhead where it intersects with Forest Road #3215000 and follow the road back to the lower trailhead. CAUTION: Road is narrow and windy with a moderate amount of vehicle traffic. source: fs.usda.gov
