Trail Description
About this trail
This trail runs along the west shore of Carter Lake. The beginning of the trail is graded for wheelchair access. After that, the trail turns into a hot, rocky brute. There is no serious climbing, the trail is mostly flat, and incessantly rocky. It's hard to maintain speed, which would help get over the rocks. A test of your bike handling skills. Might be easier on a hard tail. There are some trees, but it still gets supprisingly hot in the summer.

Review: This trail is technically pretty brutal. Not much climbing, but many rocky obstacles to test yourself on. My suggestion: bring your trail running shoes instead of your mountain bike.

Review: As the main description states, this is a very rocky trail. The south entrance has a couple hundred yards of gravel and then turns to tight single track with complex lines through rocks on the trail. The north side trail entrance skips the gravel and goes straight to the rocks... even the trail entrance. The north entrance has some small rocks in the trail that are good fun until you take a right turn around an inlet in the lake. At that point you run into large flat faced rocks with nice sharp edges.



If you're a glutton for rough technical riding and haven't ridden Sundance, it is at least worth a try. If you're a new rider like myself... then I would suggest another trail until later. I'm hoping to spend a weekend actually completing the whole trail, I had to turn back on this first trip as I was walking more than riding.
