This trail is an excellent ride for riders of almost all skill levels. The scenery is excellent, the trail is fast yet technical, and the length is just right. The only problem is, some of the other users of this trail aren't too friendly (depends). Anyway, to avoid any dirty looks, etc, ride this route clockwise. Follow the double track / dirt road down from the trailhead. At the bridge on the right, CONTINUE straight to do this loop in an acceptable manner. There are alot of side trails here but as long as you stay close to the lake front, you will not get lost. This trail reminds me of some east coast rides, particularly lake rides like Tsali and Owl's roost. Lots of trees, lots of technical sections involving large rock formations (although each of these can be avoided by taking an alternate route around them). Keep your eye out. Oh yeah, and be courteous. When someone yields trail to you, say thanks, say hello when you pass, etc. A great ride.
