Mountain Biking Jake Mountain Trails

While the Jake Mountain trail used to be severely washed out and rutted, after the recent reroute a couple years back and some time to wear in, Jake Mountain has become one of the flowiest sections of singletrack in the region! This is a favorite trail for mountain bikers and horseback riders alike.
While Jake Mountain is now smooth and flowing, it still isn't really a beginner trail, thanks to the descent down to Jones Creek and the steep climb back out of the creek bottom.
Also, note that the creek crossing is always very deep, and you are guaranteed to get your feet wet, if not your entire leg. Consequently, I avoid this trail during the winter.
