Nice riding up gravel road through private property for 1.5 miles. There is a small cattle operation which allows you to get close to the animals as you cross several cattle guards and around a metal gate before beginning the singletrack at August Mt. trail. Lots of climbing through beautiful forest as you reach Vine Maple Trail, which you can loop or continue your climb to Lost Creek Trail. There are sections of sharp, steep climbing and some hike-a-biking should be expected. Lost Creek trail continues to the park perimeter at Silver Falls SP. Turn around and enjoy the almost 6 mile DH run back to your car. Avoid the FreeRide area trails as it seems they have been abandoned. Overgrowth makes them almost impassable. All other trails are in fine condition.
