Mountain Biking Pyramid / Sturgeon Rock Trail

Ride north up and keep to the left at the first intersection you run into. There are creeks along the way for water if you bring a dog. Up to the 4wd trail crossing is ~3.5 miles and in and out to that point takes ~2 hours. You can ride far beyond that but have not myself as of yet.

    As this is a section of the larger Tarbell loop, climbing and/or descending from pyramid is not fun. It is very steep, loose rock. I would suggest starting at the Cold Creek bridge or Rock Creek campground and head East on singletrack. When you drop into Hidden Falls, climb up to a steep abandoned road and push your bike to the summit of Silver Star. Off the summit, descend Chinook Trail which ties back into Tarbell and head back on singletrack to car. It ends up being a lollipop.

    This section is part of the Tarbell loop, an epic 20 mile ride. I prefer the Cold Creek section.
