Across from the ranger kiosk is the paved Stern Trail north on Stern for a 2.8 mile 1500+ foot climb up Bald Mountain. Nice views from the 2729 foot peak are a nice break. Right on Gray Pine then right on Medow. Gray pine is Steep and can be very rutted. Should bag any trail once.

    Super steep climb up bald mountain trail. Paved but kiss your handle bars pleas don't let my front wheel lift steep. You should descend Gray Pine. Very steep rutted loose fire road. I used the word fire road very loosely. It's pretty primitively. This downhill is holy shit fun. You need to know how to handle steep fast descents on loose terrain or it's not for you. I love it.

    Good climb with great views of the area but nothing worth going out of your way for.

    I liked it! It was not Easy and not to hard. They had logs to jump over. So it was a good practice learning to jump logs. the had log jumps that were different in hight. but we didnt go to the lake, just stayed in the woods mostly. The trail didnt end in a pretty view, It ended at the cu research building. so thats the only down fall .

    This place s***s as a "mountain biking" place. It is just one long paved road up a mountain. The views are awesome, but I wouldn't call it mountain biking.
