Fawn Lake parking lot and road Fawn Lake Road up to the airstrip. Why is it called airstrip you ask? Because there is an actual tarmac airstrip in the middle of the forest. Gee, I wish I had flown my private plane in to ride...SO Airstrip the single track is an awesome, fast downhill. I hope (or think) that they should make this a one way trail. There is NO reason you should be riding it up. It is meant to be ridden down. We took a quick detour and headed over to Bridal Veil Falls. I am so glad that we did. What a site, and with the absolute silence of the forest you can hear the falls before you see them. Epic spot to stop and take a break. From there we found our way over to Reasonover Creek. Personally I felt that this trail was torture. Just when you thought you were done climbing, you start to climb again. It just seems to never end. We rode it clockwise, which I think was the wrong way to go. There is a downhill at the end (before the final, you guessed it, uphill) but we didn't think that the downhill was worth all of the uphill. I would think that this trail even in the counter-clockwise direction would be very climby. We were not almost 20 miles in for the day, so we partially chalked it up to fatigue, and it didn't ruin our day, but it was a tough way to end a great day.
