Trail Description
About this trail
A well planned set of mostly singletrack trails cut through thick forests around a few lakes and over several ridges. There are a couple of old FS roads at the south end of this area that link several trails together. Out of the three ACFL area's this one has the most beginner/intermediate riding. Access to the Heart Lake area can be found at the SE corner off of FS road 10. There are maps located at a few of the main trailheads but picking up a map at the LBS is recommended. All trails are well signed at intersections, numbered and although may not be in order do make sense after you have ridden here a bit. There are a few trails that are designated 'hiker only', predominantly around the immediate lake shores and some steep ridges.

Review: Alternative description from "Guest"

This ride is a combination of different trails, starting in the Skyline area by

the water tower on Cedar Glen Way. Starting with trail 109 heading East.

At the first T intersection I made a right, continuing on track 110 crossing

the creek between the Wetland and the Little Beaver Pond. At the next T

intersection I made a right again heading SW on trail 115. The Goal was to

head to the forest road (FR)10. I used trail 120, 115, 116 and 117 to get to

reach FR 10. Once on FR 10 go around Mitten Pond and take the first single

trail (126) right. This will connect to the Heart Lake trail system.

Trail 241 is the first trail, continuing onto trail 224. I did a little side trip on

trail 210 to get to the lake, giving my dogs a chance to go for a swim. Back

on trail 224 continue, the trail with change to 250. This is a fun twisty

section, just a few climbs. At the T intersection make a left and continue on

212. Trail 212 makes a big circle around a hill and will get back to trail 250.

Don't miss the intersection, or you will do another circle around the hill.

Once back on 250 basically used the same trail system to get back to

Review: Best trails in the state. A great way to be out in the woods yet right in the city and good beer to drink after the ride.
