    A mountain bikers bike trail. Steep rake and ride minimal maintenance trail. Only 2 miles appeared to have seen any maintenance recently. What was there was fun, but steep, tricky stream/ gully crossings, and some rocks.Fun little trail if you're in shape for it. Trail starts near the base of the north side of the dam. Starts out as a steep gravel DT and then takes a right onto ST.
