Trail Description
About this trail
Many trails ranging from beginner to expert that start at the same trail head. The trails circle around a few different lakes. Trail maps are posted frequently because there are so many different directions you can go. Look forward to a few fun downhills and a lot of uphill riding. This trail would be great for a beginner or intermediate rider with a full suspension bike because it has long stretches that are just lumpy and bumpy.

Review: A good, solid ride for a beginner, an easy ride for an intermediate rider. Biggest downside is the amount of sand, but it's by no means unrideable. I did the largest loop twice, took about 2 hours in total. A few medium hills, but not a big hilly place. No impossible climbs for me, a beginner/intermediate rider.

Review: Started at post 1 off Sands Lake, and went on the inner loop CW that includes posts 10, 16, and 20. I found the ride very scenic and enjoyable, and easily doable for a beginner. There were some technical parts, but easy to handle. Posts 18 through 4 are quite wide with very gentle hills on parts of it. It felt like posts east of 10 had more traditional thin singletrack trails.
