This trail circles the entirety of Lake Russell. AND, it is AMAZING! The
quality of the trail is stunning, it is truly epic-quality singletrack! The views
are great, as at many times you are riding RIGHT ON the edge of the
water... i.e. if you fell the wrong way you would be going for a swim. there
is not a whole lot of elevation gain or loss (there are a couple of short hills
to mix things up) as this trail runs pretty much on the water's edge the
entire time. I thoroughly enjoyed this ride, and it kept a smile pasted on
my face! I can't believe I found this by accident (when I was trying to find
the Ladyslipper trail) and that I've never heard anyone talking about this.
it is awesome!
