Grandview Point and Pine Knot Trail Loop
Intermediate / Advanced - 9 miles total

From The Adventure Hostel ( 527 Knickerbocker Rd. ) in the Village ride up Knickerbocker Rd. Just as the road starts to turn you will see fireroad 2N08 on your left. This is a tough 4 mile climb all the way to Grandview Point. (2 miles climbing, 2 miles relatively flat) On your way to Grandview Point you will pass Towne Trail to Snow Summit on your left, 2N51Y on your left, cross Pine Knot Trail (1E01) and 2N17 on your right and arrive at Grandview Junction. Take the short .25 mile climb to Grandview Point and enjoy the view and some food and drink. You are about to enjoy the best singletrack descent in the area all the way down to Mill Creek Road Picnic Area. During your descent on Pine Knot Trail (1E01) you will go straight across 2N10 and 2N08. When you get to the picnic area take a right on Mill Creek Road, then a right on Highway 18. Go straight through the village and you will hit Knickerbocker Rd. Go left and you will be back at the Adventure Hostel.
